AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police said they located two runaway children within two hours of issuing a be-on-the-lookout alert on Sunday.

Police said a 9-year-old and an 11-year-old were last seen around noon in the area of 6100 Fairway Street. The location is just south of the Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Metro Park.

Police told KXAN they wanted to spread the word because of their young ages and they hoped to find them before dark. A reverse 911 was also issued for the area where they were last seen.
