They have not been seen or heard from since Saturday, May 30 when Oscar dropped their children off with a family member, officials said.

According a news release from the sheriff’s department, “Devin and Oscar are both employed full time and neither of them have reported to work or contacted their supervisors, nor have they made any attempt to contact family, friends or their children.”
