The Amber Alert that was issued for four children has been cancelled after the children have been safely located.
The children were found in north Harris County at around 5 p.m. on Thursday. Several children were escorted into police cars parked in front of the home.
They will be turned over to Child Protective Services while the investigation continues.
A man and a woman were also escorted out of the home and placed in Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office vehicles.
The woman, who spoke with Local 2's Irika Sargent, said all of her children are safe.
The Amber Alert was originally issued shortly after 3pm for 9-month-old Natalie Torres, 2 year-old Isabel Torres, 7-year-old Eliezer Torres Jr. and 8-year-old Isreal Torres.
They were believed to have been abducted by their father, 31-year-old Eliezer Torres.
Their mother, 32-year-old Isila Rodriguez, was also missing.
During a CPS investigation, authorities say the mother of the child came forward with information about the father endangering at least one of the children. A Harris County Family Court issued an order awarding emergency custody of the children to CPS.
CPS says they attempted to take custody of the children on Monday but were unsuccessful. CPS went to the location with law enforcement and it appeared the family vacated.
