MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The four Memphis children at the center of an Amber Alert have been found safe, according to the Memphis Police Department.
Officials said the children were found safely in Memphis around 7 p.m.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued the Amber Alert for 10-year-old Mariah Thomas, 8-year-old Jamiyah Thomas, 3-year-old Chance Veasley and 1-year-old Kei’Myia Veasley earlier in the day.
According to MPD, the children were with their mother, 25-year-old Jamisha Thomas. Thomas does not have custody of the children and police believed the children to be in danger.
According to police, the children had not been seen since October 5 and Thomas was wanted on charges of kidnapping and aggravated child abuse.
Police believed they may have been traveling in a 2002 Ford Explorer, possibly bearing Louisiana license plates.
