SACRAMENTO, CA - Two Nevada children that were allegedly abducted by their parents from protective custody Wednesday were found safe in Sacramento Friday night.
The children, 9-year-old Lillyanna Ramires and her 3-year-old brother Martin Angel Rosales were found safe Friday at 11:31 p.m.
Sacramento police officers was hailed down by the children's non-custodial mother Amber Schenk on the 400 block of Richards Boulevard. She told the officers that she had the children that were the subject of an Amber Alert, Sacramento Police Officer Doug Morse said.
Elko police believed the children were with Schenk and Martin Cisneras Rosales, 34, also known as Martin Cisneros, who is the little boy's father.
Elko Police Cpt. Will Lehmann said the children's father was not with the children at the time they were found by Sacramento police.
Schenk was not arrested because there was no arrest warrant for her at the time the kids were found, Lehmann said. He said they will be speaking with the district attorney's office about pursuing charges against Schenk.
The children were taken into protective custody and will be returned back to Nevada by authorities, Lehmann said.
Elko police were originally concerned for the children's safety and said Rosales has had violent run-ins with the law. There is a restraining order against Rosales to keep him away from his son.
