Three boys ages 9, 8, and 5 along with a 3-year-old girl were reported missing by their mother in Salem, N.H. on September 11.  

The mother says her ex-husband, Matthew Giovanditto, 30, possibly drove them to Colorado and is refusing to bring them home.

Giovanditto is believed to be driving a 2015 white, Chevrolet Traverse with a New Hampshire Disabled Veteran plate 2559.

He should also be hauling a white, 2000 Jayco Eagle pop-up camper with New Hampshire registration T400759.
