ARAB, Ala. -- Alabama officials have issued a missing child alert for four brothers they say went missing on Friday, CBS affiliate WHNT reports.

Authorities said the children -- 1-year-old Corbin Simmons, 4-year-old Alexander Simmons, 5-year-old Nicholas Simmons and 11-year-old Ian Simmons -- were last seen leaving their home in Arab, Alabama. They could be traveling in a 2003 white Ford Windstar with a license plate of 8AJ1511, according to authorities.

It's unclear where the children are traveling or who they are with, but officials said it's possible they are headed to North Carolina.

Nicholas is 3 feet tall and weighs around 35 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Ian is 4 feet 5 inches tall, weighs around 86 pounds, and has strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes. His photo is the only photo authorities have released at this time.

FBI eyes brothers in possible attack on Border Patrol agents .
The FBI is investigating two brothers as "persons of interest" in a possible attack two weeks ago that left one Border Patrol agent dead and another seriously injured near Van Horn, Texas. The bureau, following up on a tip from an informant, is pursuing a theory that the brothers, undocumented immigrants allegedly involved in smuggling people, drugs or both, might have assaulted the two agents, according to an unsealed search warrant filed in federal court in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Monday.
