Tallahassee, FL - The family of a missing Tallahassee woman and her two kids is offering a $2,000 reward for any information leading to their safe return.

Charity Hogan, her son, Djimon Jackson and her daughter, Chloe Jackson, have not been seen or heard from in six days.

Hogan's aunt, Mary Frances Harris, says, "I just want Charity to know that she needs to let somebody know where she and the kids are. It's just so unusual for her to take the kids and nobody knows where they're at. It's so much happening. I just want to make sure that the kids are okay and that she's okay."

Harris says she last saw the 40-year-old mother around 11:00 Saturday night. She says Hogan and her children were leaving their home in Leon County to drive to Mobile, Alabama.

Harris says she expressed concern about Hogan getting on the road so late at night, but, says Hogan told her that a male friend in Midway was going to help her drive. "So, I told her, okay, we love you and she said love you, too; and left. We haven't seen or heard from her since."

The family doesn't know who that 'friend' is.

Relatives say Hogan's cell phone goes straight to voicemail.

Her close cousin, Susan Towels, says, "She would at lease have the phone on and even if she didn't feel like answering it, it would ring. But, it's not ringing. She would return a call if we left a her a message. But, we haven't been able to do that."

Towels adds, "I can't even tell you what it feels like, the not knowing and just the waiting. We love them and we miss them and we're worried."

Harris says, "I practically raised her from a baby. So, she's just like one of my kids."

Today, Friday, July 18th, is the Djimon's 10th birthday.

Hogan was last seen driving a black 2002 Lexus four-door sedan with Alabama license number 5404AL8.
