By: News Director Larissa Donovan

MOTLEY– The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says three children reported missing earlier this week have been found safe in Cass County.

According to earlier reports, the TBI was seeking the whereabouts of 6-year-old Analia Essex, 2-year-old Abigail Christian and 1-year-old Michale Christian after they disappeared from their Tennessee home under suspicious circumstances.

The TBI believed the children were heading to Minnesota in a White SUV. They were found in the presence of their non-custodial parents, Amanda Essex and Michale Christian, who are now in police custody.

No further details have been announced.
