Assistant Manager Trixie Ballard said at the time, she didn’t understand why anyone would ​drop their young kids off at a shopping ​center.​
“We saw a vehicle that pulled ​up in the parking lot and the little ​boy ran out first… you could see him running out the car. ​He ran up to the door — he was running fast, he almost fell — and then the little girl came up behind him ​right afterwards,” Ballard recalled.
A customer called police, and they shortly learned​ they were the two children​ at the center of the Amber Alert ​issued out of Farmers Branch.

Although the children were located, the car has yet to be found.

Police say the car is a burgundy 2017 GMC Terrain with a Texas license plate HFL1525. The Terrain’s front passenger side quarter panel is black and the front passenger side door is red.
