PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WVEC) -- Two children who were allegedly taken by their mother who threatened to kill them have been found, following an on Amber Alert Friday evening. 

5-year-old Dominique Jarvis and 1 `1/2-year-old Messiah Jarvis were found just after midnight. We are told that their mother, 24-year-old Asia Jarvis, dropped them off at a relative's home before taking off.

Police are still searching for her.

The father, who has custody of the two children, received a message from their mother that caused him to worry and contact police. Their initial investigation led them to believe that children remained in immediate danger as long as they were with Asia Jarvis. 

13News Now spoke with a few of Asia Jarvis's family members. They claim that police have it all wrong, and that the children were safe with the mother, and it is the father who is causing problems. 

Lavante Jarvis, the children's uncle, told 13News Now, "The mother got the kids. She just keeping the kids out of danger from the father, he went and pressed charges on her. I don't know why he do that." 

Asia currently has two warrants on file for felony abduction. 

"If they're with their momma, they're safe," said Lavante. "If they're with him, they in danger, ya feel me?"
