Police are searching for a San Diego County man suspected of shooting a woman and kidnapping her two children.

The California Highway Patrol issued a state-wide Amber Alert Monday night.

40-year-old James Lee DiMaggio is suspected of killing Christina Anderson, 44, and kidnapping one or both of her children: Hannah Anderson, 16, and Ethan Anderson, 8.

The bodies of Christina Anderson and an unidentified child were found dead in a burned home in Boulevard in eastern San Diego County.

Investigators think DiMaggio has one or both of Anderson's children with him in a blue Nissan Versa with California license plate 6WCU986.

CHP says he may be headed to either Texas or Canada.
