PHILADELPHIA - May 22, 2010 (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police want your help finding two missing children at the heart of a custody battle.
Police say on Friday, it was determined during a meeting at a home on the 1500 block of Arch Street that 3-year-old Marqui Robinson and his 5-year-old sister Iriane should be surrendered to their uncle.
When that meeting ended, the mother, Samira, refused to surrender the children stating she would surrender the kids over her dead body.
Police later responded to Samira's home located on the 1300 block of South Taylor Street in South Philadelphia, but she claimed she did not know the whereabouts of the children.
Police say Samira has to surrender the children because she is in violation of custody orders in both Pennsylvania and Georgia.
She now has an active warrant for her arrest in PA.
Once arrested, Samira faces charges of felony interference with custody and concealment of the whereabouts of the kids.
Iriane is asthmatic and may be in need of medicine.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
