TAMPA, Fla. -- Deputies ask for the public's help in finding a mother who they say took her four children before they could be checked on.  Now, we've learned she may only be with three of them.

Gilbrina Longworth, 27, is believed to be driving a four-door, blue Nissan Maxima with Florida tag IHQJ42, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

It's alleged Longworth removed her children on Dec. 20, 2017, from daycare at 4017 North 34th Street before a child protective services investigator could make contact.

Originally, the children who were with her were identified as Israel Longworth, 6; Shelliya Jackson, 4; Shelly Jackson, 3; and Noryye Longworth who is 6 months old.  We're told Israel Longworth is no longer missing. 

Anyone with information is asked to call deputies at 813-247-8200.
