The Amber Alert issued earlier this week for two missing brothers from LeRoy remains in effect as authorities continue the search for the boys and their father, Michael Connolly. It's alleged the boys' father has abducted them after failing to return them to their mother following a weekend visitation and that he may have taken them to Hoffman Estates. A federal warrant for kidnapping was issued for Connolly on Monday, as well. The latest report also calls Connolly "possibly suicidal" which only raises the urgency for finding them. [CBS 2]
