JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police say the mother of three missing children from Miami rented a car at the Jacksonville International Airport.

According to the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department, 32-year-old Carrie Weingarth and her boyfriend, Christian Coello, rented a 2014 Jeep Patriot at the Enterprise at JIA.

Both are believed to have traveled near Walker, La., according to police.

Police said the Jeep is dark blue and has a Florida tag that reads 476HXS.

A missing child alert was issued for three kids believed to have been last seen in Columbia County.

Erin had on a blue polo shirt, khaki pants and tennis shoes that were orange and gray, FDLE said. Clothing descriptions for the other children were not released. All the kids are between 3 feet 6 inches tall and 4 feet 2 inches tall. Erin and Derick are listed with brown hair and eyes, while Steven is listed with black hair.

If she's driving a rental and it's a 2014, why can't they use gps to find it?
