Miami police are looking for two young sisters who detectives say were last seen with their mother and father, who do not have custody of the girls.
Keilyn and Kristel Martinez, ages 4 and 3, were last seen Sunday at about 3 a.m. at their grandmother’s home at 2853 SW 23rd St., according to police.
Police say the girls are with Christy Vigo Rezkala and Erline Martinez.
Miami police officer Rene Pimentel said the girls’ grandmother, who has custody of the sisters, told police that her daughter and the children’s father showed up at her home in the middle of the night for a visit.

The grandmother went to sleep and when she woke up at 10 a.m. she did not hear the girls. She waited until noon to enter their bedroom and saw they were gone. She then tried to call her daughter, to no avail.
She reported the girls missing to police Monday.
Keilyn is 2-feet 8-inches tall and weighs 30 pounds. Her sister is 2-feet 10 inches and weighs 50 pounds.
“We want to make sure the children are back where they belong and that is in the care of their grandmother until a judge says otherwise,” Pimentel said.
Police said that as of Tuesday night they had no additional information on the case.
Anyone with information is asked to call Miami Police Department Special Victims Unit at 305-603-6310 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
