JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Three endangered children are still with their fugitive mother, who's been on the run for four days.
Thirty-year old Carrie Weingarth and her boyfriend Christian Coella are crossing state lines, and each time, police are one step behind them.
"We know that they are traveling west in Walker, Louisiana," said Capt. Ivan Silva with Miami Dade Schools Police.
Investigators tracked her debit card to a TD Bank ATM in Lake City around noon Monday.
Then just three hours later, she showed up at the Jacksonville International Airport looking to make a vehicle swap at the Enterprise Rent A Car. The clerk who helped them didn't want to go on camera but told us the children seemed happy with promises to vacation in Disney this week.
Action News reached out to Enterprise's corporate office to obtain the surveillance video but they haven't returned my calls. We even asked airport officials but they say they haven't even viewed it for themselves.
Now all police have to go on is their rental car, a 2014 Jeep Patriot with this Florida license plate.
Weingarth has joint custody of her two youngest sons, Derrick and Steven, but not 12-year-old Erin Pena, who lived with his father.
On Friday, Erin's Miami school denied the mother permission to remove him from class. Investigators said she snuck into the elementary school cafeteria anyway and pulled him out.
"She was determined to go in and get her son," said Silva.
Investigators said the mother and the boyfriend have a criminal history. While they don't have reason to believe they'd hurt the children, police said they won't take any chances.
