The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an Amber Alert for the children Wednesday, advising the children were last seen in Manatee County last Friday.
Just after midnight, two guests at the Hampton Inn in Eufaula that had seen the Amber Alert thought they recognized the children playing in the lobby area and notified the Eufaula Police Department.
Officers located the vehicle identified in the Alert and confirmed that the Alert and warrant were still active.
Contact was made with the mother of the children, Jamia Gadeaun and she was taken into custody without incident. The children, age 6,8,10, and 12 were checked by Eufaula Fire Department personnel before being turned over to the Barbour County Department of Human Resources.
All of the children appeared to be in good health. Ms. Gadeaun was taken to the Eufaula City Jail where she awaits an extradition hearing.
