Stockton police have released a photo of one of two twin toddlers who remain missing after their parents were arrested last week.

The 20-month-old youngsters – a girl, Setina Weddles, and a boy, Ren Weddles – were among members of a family reported missing Jan. 4. The parents, Aaron Weddles, 41, and Princess Dara Canez Walker, 32, along with a 4-year-old girl and 2-year-old twin girls, were found Jan. 9 in a vehicle full of weapons and drugs in the area of Trinity Parkway and McAuliffe Drive in Stockton.

Weddles and Canez Walker were booked into San Joaquin County Jail, accused of child endangerment and abuse, and the three children were placed in protective custody.

The search continues for the 20-month-old twins, and police on Wednesday released photos, taken in November 2016, of Setina. Police said they still do not have a photo of Ren.
