Three children from Florida children missing since Friday have been found safe in California.
Their mother, along with her boyfriend, are in custody, according to Miami Dade Schools Police.
On Friday, Carrie Weingarth picked up her son, Erin Pena, from Gulfstream Elementary and left town with him and her two younger sons Steven and Derrick Pena.
According to a tweet by Miami-Dade Schools Police sent out around 8 p.m. Thursday, the three children were found safe in Barstow, California. Weingarth, along with her boyfriend Christian Coello, are in custody.
According to family members she did have custody of two of the children.
Earlier Thursday, the older sister of Weingarth asked for her sister to come home.
“I want her to come home so we can help her and make things better. I know she didn’t do anything wrong. I just want her home,” said Melissa Weingarth.
The state has since awarded custody of all three boys to their biological father and police had issued a warrant for Weingarth’s arrest for interfering with custody.
Joe Carillo is a private investigator who is working with Weingarth’s family who was helping to bring her and the boys back home safely.
“We believe she is watching the news and we want her to come home and we are here to make sure she gets a fair shot at this. This can be fixed,” said Joe Carillo of Leverage Investigations, Inc.
The boys were believed to still be with Weingarth who was said to possibly be with her boyfriend Coello. It was believed that they had left the state.
