Police are looking for eight children who they say were abducted from a Queens child welfare agency by their own mother Monday.
NYPD officials say Shanel Nadal, 28, took her children without permission from the Forestdale Child Agency in Forest Hills during a visit Monday afternoon.
Police say she may be with the child's father, Nephra Payne.
The children range in age from 11 months to 11 years old.
Authorities believe the parents could be traveling in a black 1996 Chevrolet Suburban with the New York license plate number EXZ5896.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
