Authorities In W. Michigan Look For 2 Missing Kids

LUDINGTON (WWJ/AP) - Authorities in West Michigan say they're looking for two young children whose father failed to drop them off with their mother as planned.

The Mason County Sheriff's Department said Friday that 4-year-old Douglas McCallum and 2-year-old Shelby McCallum were last known to be with 52-year-old Mark McCallum on Wednesday. The department reports they're investigating it as a parental kidnapping.

The department said both parents live in the Ludington area and there was a shared custody arrangement. They were to be dropped off Thursday.

Authorities are looking for either a dark green 1995 Dodge pickup truck with a Michigan license plate "DALE12" or a dark blue 2005 Chevrolet Malibu with a Michigan license plate "1CDX85." Officials say Mark McCallum has family ties in the Grand Rapids area and in Arizona.

Anyone with information should call the Mason/Oceana Central Dispatch at 231-869-5858 or the Mason County Sheriff's Office at 231-843-3475.
