An Amber Alert issued Friday in Virginia for two young boys believed to have been abducted by their mother has been canceled after the children were found safe. Their mother, however, has not been found.

Portsmouth police issued the Amber Alert for 5-year-old Dominique Eugene Jarvis and 1-year-old Messiah Khyon Jones-Jarvis Friday. Both children had last been seen at a home in the 1100 block of Carrington Crescent in Portsmouth Friday morning.

At the time the alert was issued, the children were believed to be in extreme danger after officials say their father reported to police that their mother, 24-year-old Asia Jarvis, sent him a message claiming she would shoot their sons if the father did not provide her with money. The father has custody of the two kids.

Asia Jarvis is described as a black female who is 5’8” tall and weighs 215 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a blue night robe, green tights and an oversized shirt. 

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Portsmouth Police Department immediately at 757-393-5300, Detective A. Mannings at 757-718-6781, Virginia State Police at 1-800-822-4453 (1-800-VACHILD) or 911.
