The children who were the subject of the Amber Alert that set off alarms on our phones and television were found safe in Cheney, Spokane County on Tuesday evening, and their father was arrested by Washington State Patrol.

The parents had been ordered to turn the children over to Child Protective Services after a judge ruled that the children were in danger in their home. Instead the parents took the children across state, while police and state patrol mounted an all-out search for them, based on a description of their Bouncer motor home.

Washington State Patrol across the I-90 corridor had been looking for this vehicle since 4:30am to arrest the male driver for Violation of a Protection Order and threats to harm.

The driver, who is the children's father, was arrested without incident and transported to the King County Jail to meet Seattle police to be booked.

The children’s parents were questioned and released, pending further action from the courts. The children ranged in age from 7 to 16,
