MINNEAPOLIS — Minneapolis police said two missing young children have been found safe, and their non-custodial mother is in police custody.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) issued an "endangered missing persons alert" for the three-year-old and one-year-old children on Tuesday night, after they disappeared at a Minneapolis light rail transit station during a supervised visit with their mother on Tuesday afternoon.

In a news release issued around 12:40 a.m. Wednesday, Minneapolis police said the children were found "in a coordinated effort (with)... the St. Paul Police Department.

Their mother was taken into custody and booked into the Hennepin County Jail.

Minneapolis Police said no Amber Alert was issued because there were no indications of an imminent threat or risk of bodily harm to the children.
