LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico authorities have asked the public for help locating two young brothers they say were taken from daycare by their father and hidden.

Las Cruces Police Department authorities say a nationwide arrest warrant was issued for 52-year-old Clarence Michael Ransom on charges of failure to register as a sex offender and non-compliance with a custodial agreement.

Authorities say 3-year-old Maverick Ransom and 4-year-old Orion Ransom were last seen Oct. 8 when their father picked them up from a Las Cruces daycare center.

Authorities say they have reason to believe the father traveled to Cuidad Juarez, Mexico the same day and returned to the United States the following day.

Authorities say the father does not pose a threat.

Authorities ask anyone with information to call local law enforcement.
