Missing Children Located Across State Lines, Mother Arrested

By  | 

Two missing children from New Mexico were found in Alamosa late Tuesday night.

The New Mexico State Police issued an Amber Alert Tuesday afternoon after an 8-year-old and 6-month-old were reported missing. It was believed that they were abducted by their mother out of Las Vegas, N.M. Authorities say 25-year-old Davina Wilkins was in violation of a court order, and was believed to be taking her sons out of state. A warrant was put out for Wilkins.

Colorado law enforcement agencies were notified that Wilkins could be traveling through Alamosa, and started looking for her vehicle. At 11:30 p.m., a state trooper reportedly spotted the car at a gas station in Alamosa. Wilkins was taken into custody and the two boys were turned over to the Alamosa County Department of Human Services. The department is working to return the children to New Mexico.

Wilkins remains in custody in Colorado, but will extradited back to New Mexico.

The two children not were harmed.
