PLYMOUTH, Utah An Amber Alert was cancelled after two brothers taken from their grandmother's home were found in Southern Utah.
The boys were found near Ivins in Southern Utah after a traffic stop. Their mother was taken into custody. Officials said the children were not injured.
Around 11:00am Saturday morning, a tip was called into Box Elder and Washington County Sheriffs offices indicating the vehicle was seen in the area. A sergeant with the Ivins Public Safety Department located and pulled over the car.
The mother was arrested without incident and the two children appeared to be fine and unharmed. The children were in the custody of The Division of Child and Family Services.
The children ages 7 and 12, disappeared Friday sometime between 3:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. They were believed to be with their biological mother, who is not their legal guardian, Box Elder County sheriff's Sgt. Kevin Potter said.
Tessa Marie Morton has not had custody of the children since 2001, but was on a supervised visit with them, Potter said. Judy Cline, their grandmother and Tessa's mother, told police she last saw all three about 3:30 a.m., but when she awoke about 6 a.m., they were gone and her car was missing.
The mother has a history of mental illness and drug abuse. She was booked into the Purgatory Facility in St. George on a $50,000 bond.
