Officials continue to search for two boys -- ages 2 and 4 -- who were abducted in Hillsborough County by their parents.

An Amber Alert was issued Wednesday after, deputies say, 2-year-old Chase and 4-year-old Cole Hakken were kidnapped from their grandmother's home in the 14000 block of Shady Shores Drive.

Neither the boys' father, Joshua Hakken, nor their mother, Sharyn Hakken, have legal custody of the children.

According to the grandmother, Patricia Hauser, Joshua Hakken tied her up and took off with the kids in her 2009 silver Toyota Camry.  Officials believe they could now be traveling in a 2006 black GMC pickup registered to Joshua Hakken.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the children or their parents is urged to call police.
