7 siblings who went missing from their Fresno, California home last week have been found safe with their father, officials say, and no charges have been filed thus far.
The children–Chee Nou Yang, 12; Cha Meng Yang, 11; Zia Yang, 10; Chue Feng Yang, 8; Zang Yang, 7; Tria Yang, 6; and Tou Ger Yang, 5–were taken from their home when their mother and stepfather left them to go grocery shopping, and while there were no signs of forced entry–which suggested their estranged father might have taken them–it was a harrowing week for the family as they went without word regarding the kids.
The father was tracked down, however, and did indeed have the kids at his home in Sacramento. The children were unharmed and in “good spirits”, and police say no charges have been brought at this time, though an investigation has been launched. The mother says the man has been estranged from the family for three years, so it’s unclear why he took the children without the mother’s knowledge.
