The Navajo Nation Police on Thursday afternoon issued an Amber Alert.
Turquoise Sky Peshlakai, 10; Rumaldo Peshlakai Jr., 7; Coral Dawn Peshlakai, 5; and Rain Cloud Peshlakai, 2, have been allegedly abducted by their father Rumaldo Peshlakai on Thursday, according to authorities.
Police sources say SWAT responded to a man with a weapon call in the Tseyatoh community area, which is west of Gallup, New Mexico. Navajo police responded to an alleged domestic dispute, according to a press release from the Navajo Nation Police Department.

Police sources say the police are searching in the Tseyatoh.
