LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles police say three missing children from Greensboro, Ga., have been found safe with their mother.
Sgt. Alfredo Reyes tells the Los Angeles Times that the children were found in a red van that was spotted on a Los Angeles freeway around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.
KABC-TV showed the mother being handcuffed and the children and a dog being removed from the van.
Reyes says 11-year-old Michelle Hogan, her 4-year-old brother, Jonathan, and 3-year-old sister, Jasmine, were taken to a police station for questioning along with 28-year-old Carolyn Hogan.
The family had driven from Greensboro, Ga., and vanished Tuesday morning after leaving a mission in Los Angeles' Skid Row.
A Georgia court had issued a protective order for the children
