According to a news release, Erica Timpson, 24, of Alene Circle in Augusta, became aware of the court order, took her children – a 4-year-old and 2-year-old twins – from an alternative caregiver’s home and left the county.

The South Carolina De­part­ment of Social Ser­vices obtained the court order Wednesday.

The Aiken County Sher­iff’s Office, with the assistance of the Richmond Coun­ty Sheriff’s Office, found Timpson and her children in the 2900 block of Vanessa Drive in Augusta on Thurs­day. She was arrested and taken to the Richmond County Detention Center.

Why is there no Amber Alert?

Wouldn't that help find them? I would think with the children in danger the authorities would want to get this information out to as many people as possible.

Now if she had been their father

There would have been a SWAT team outside that house and everyone would be condemning the dad.
