3 children found safely

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Three children reported missing by Orangeburg Department of Public Safety (ODPS) earlier this month were found safely today.

ODPS officials responded earlier this month to an incident regarding a custody dispute when the father did not return the children to their mother who has custody of them.

The father was arrested for custodial interference.

The children are currently in the process of being brought back to South Carolina.

ODPS thanks the cooperation of the media for their assistance in publicizing information regarding the missing children.
