Children sought through Amber Alert are found

September 27, 2009

HANCOCK -- When Deputy 1st Class D.L. Broussard ran the plate of a suspicious U-Haul in the AC&T parking lot early Sunday, he learned an Amber Alert had been issued for two children believed to be in the vehicle traveling from Michigan.

A closer check by the Washington County Sheriff's deputy at 3:35 a.m. turned up two youngsters, ages 3 and 5, both reported missing by their legal custodian in Michigan's Shelby Township.

Two adults -- a woman believed to be the mother of the children -- and a man were questioned, and told the deputy they were from Michigan and were heading to Virginia.

Calls were immediately made to Michigan and based on the information received, no charges were lodged against the two adults in Washington County or in Michigan.

The adults were released Sunday morning, deputies said.

The children, a boy and girl, were found to be in good health, deputies said. Just before midday Sunday, they were being cared for at 500 Western Maryland Parkway while waiting for their father, who was expected to arrive late Sunday afternoon from Michigan.

Deputies got breakfast for the children and a change of clothing for the 3-year-old girl.
