The names of the 3-year-olds who died Sunday are being released. Raylynn M. Gardner was born September 24, 2004. Her brother, Kyler A. Gardner was born August 2, 2005. They were reported missing by their mother at 1:40 Sunday afternoon. Officers arrived at 2:05 and found the children at 3:14. Both toddlers were unresponsive when they were discovered inside a disabled family car in the driveway of their home.

Medical aid was immediately provided for the children who were pronounced deceased. The Shawnee County Coroner's office says the children died of hyperthermia and were otherwise healthy.

A memorial fund has been set up to help the family with funeral costs. If you would like to donate you can visit any Capitol City Bank location. Checks can be mailed to 3710 SW Topeka Blvd. Topeka, KS 66609
