SHELBY COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

A Regional Amber Alert has been issued after a three-year-old Shelby County child was presumably abducted.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office said Ivan Alvarado, 3, was reportedly abducted around 9 a.m. Saturday from the 1100 block of County Road 4249 in Tenaha. He is described as three feet tall with black hair and weighs approximately 20 lbs.  

Deputies said Ivan, his 16-year-old sister Viviana Alvarado and Paola Alvarado (Viviana's one-year-old daughter) all disappeared from the residence "presumably together," according to the alert.

The group were last seen in a late-model black Cadillac Escalade.

Anyone with information is asked to call authorities immediately.
