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

They arrested the mother in

They arrested the mother in front of the children?!?! I know she might have issues, but I don't see where that can be good for the children's psychological well being....

So Einstein, are you some

So Einstein, are you some bleeding heart liberal? The article just says,"KABC-TV showed the mother being handcuffed and the children and a dog being removed from the van." It does not infer that the mother was arrested or mistreated in any way in front of the children. Talk about the children's psychological well being, they were last seen leaving a mission of Los Angeles' Skid Row. That alone should scar them for life. And of course, they were taken to a police station for questioning, along with whom I am assuming is their mother, the 28 year old, the article does not make that clear either. What an ordeal for these children.There is not enough information in this article to make an assumption about anything.

Tuffen, no... I'm definitely

Tuffen, no... I'm definitely not a liberal of any sort. I just think it is sad in the eyes of the children, that's all. And you better believe that when something stressful happens to a child, there are often long-standing ramifications. I've seen this in too many of my friends to doubt it. As you admitted, we do not know all of the facts, but I would imagine that those kids love their mother, no matter what any court order says. There is no reason to further torment the children... I just hope that the mother was arrested out of sight of the children, that's all. Guess you would call me a "Compassionate Conservative." lol
