Four missing children who were abducted by their mother and her boyfriend earlier this week have been found.

"They were located in Las Vegas last night through the U.S. Marshals Service and Las Vegas Metro PD," said Cheyenne Police Officer Dan Long. "I don't know how they specifically tracked them down."

Long says the Puga children's biological father, who lives in Greeley, Colorado, had recently been awarded custody of the kids, which is what prompted their mother, 33-year-old Sophia Martinez, and her boyfriend, 30-year-old Lucas Abero, to take the kids and leave town.

Martinez was wanted on a warrant for interference with custody and Abero was wanted on a warrant out of Colorado for failure to register as a sex offender.
