February 6, 2020 GMT

YORK, Neb. (AP) — State troopers found two children reported missing by Michigan authorities and took their mother into custody, the Nebraska State Patrol said.

The 7-year-old boy and his 9-year-old sister had been traveling with their parents in their pickup truck, which was spotted Tuesday afternoon at a gas station in York. The children were turned over to Nebraska authorities for a return to Michigan.

Their mother, Rebecca Dunkelberger, was arrested on a Michigan warrant alleging a probation violation and allegations about violation of a custody order. It’s unclear whether she has an attorney. Her husband, Dennis Dunkelberger, was released because there were no charges pending against him, authorities said.
