GENOA CITY—Genoa City police issued an alert Tuesday seeking the public's help in locating a woman and her two children.
Jenna and Katie Brick, ages 8 and 6 respectively, were reported missing at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday by their grandparents, according to the Genoa City Police Department news release.

Tiffany Brick, the mother of the children, is suspected of taking the children. That's in violation of her agreement with Walworth County Child Protective Services, Genoa City Police Chief Joseph Balog said.

The agreement forbids Brick from being alone with the children. She is permitted to see them only under supervision of the children's grandparents, Balog said.

The children were at the grandparents' home when the grandmother woke at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, Balog said. The grandmother returned to her room, checked on the kids again at about 6:30 a.m. and discovered them missing, Balog said.

The grandparents checked the rest of the house and discovered Brick, the children and the car were all gone, Balog said.

While Brick does not have a violent criminal record, police are concerned for the safety of the children because “she boldly stepped outside of the agreement,” Balog said.

Brick entered into the agreement because she is facing one count of forgery and five counts of misappropriating identity to obtain money, according to online court records.

Brick was last seen driving a 2006 black four-door GMC Sierra pickup truck with a pink Browning sticker on the back window and license plate number JZ-1918, according to the news release.

She may be traveling with her boyfriend, Scott Hogel, according to the news release. Brick has a confederate flag tattoo on her right shoulder, according to the news release.

Brick often frequents Janesville and McHenry, Illinois, according to the news release.

Anyone with any information on Brick or the children can contact the Genoa City Police Department at 262-279-6252.
