DELTONA, Fla. - Volusia County sheriff's deputies are searching for a woman who has ran away with her three children -- ranging from 4 months old to 8 years old -- after they were ordered into state custody.
Deputies said Tonia Schurman, 27, disappeared Monday after leaving her home on Belvedere Drive in Deltona.
According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Schurman apparently fled after a judge ordered the Florida Department of Children and Families to take her three children, 8-year-old Ibraheem Ayoub, 6-year-old Yasmin Ayoub and 4-month-old Madaleen Ayoub into custody.
Deputies said Schurman was believed to be traveling in a black 2003 Isuzu Ascender SUV with the Florida tag BKM195.
The children are considered missing and endangered, according to deputies.
Anyone who sees Schurman is asked to call the Sheriff's Office immediately at 386-736-5999.
