ELKHART, Ind. (AP) – Police and federal agents extended their search to Chicago yesterday for four children and their mother, whose ex-boyfriend authorities say shot a man and kidnapped them in Indiana the day before.

Authorities have issued an Amber Alert and said the children and their mother, 31-year-old Kimberly N. Walker, were in extreme danger. Walker and Jerry D. White, 30, the father of the four children, once lived in Chicago, and White has family there, police said.

Police said they recovered two cars, a Dodge Intrepid that White used to flee and Walker’s two-door Saturn, which White is suspected of stealing Friday. The cars were found Saturday night in Elkhart, about 90 miles east of Chicago.

The cars have not provided additional clues to investigators, Elkhart police Lt. Peggy Snider said Sunday. Police reported no new developments late yesterday afternoon.
