An Amber Alert was issued Monday for two children who walked away from their Horizon City home.
11-year-old Norma Gaspar and her stepbrother, 7-year-old Angel Rodarte, were last seen at the Valero gas station on Darrington Road around 6:00 a.m. Monday.
A neighbor asked them if they were okay and the children replied yes.
Investigators believe the two may be headed to Juarez to visit Norma's biological mother.
In fact, that's exactly what the children tried to do in February 2008.
Another Alert was issued when the children hitchhiked to the border and crossed the bridge into Juarez.
They were found unhurt the same day and returned home.
If you see them, call the El Paso County Sheriff's Department immediately.
