OLATHE, Kan. — Police officers are reassuring the community that they are investigating a troubling Facebook video being shared that depicts two young children getting into a trunk of a car, then the car driving off.

That video has since been removed from social media.

Police have released a photo of the car suspected in their investigation.

On Thursday, officers responded to the 800 block of South Parker Street on a report of child endangerment.

They were made aware of the video, began their investigation at that location and continue to try to locate the vehicle and people in it.

The vehicle was a 2000’s model Volkswagen Jetta with a Kansas license plate tag.  In the video, the children are seen getting into the trunk shortly before the car drives off.

The address on Parker Street is about two miles northwest of the former The Great Mall of the Great Plains.

Police stressed they want people to call 911 first instead of posting to social media first.
