Police say two children kidnapped from their home early this morning by their mother's ex-boyfriend have been found safe.

Clayton County Police Captain Tim Robinson says the children were found with a relative of the suspect in Greensboro, North Carolina. Robinson says he has no other immediate information.

An Amber Alert was issued across Georgia and the Carolinas today after Terrance McDowell allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend's father and abducted her two young children.

Police say McDowell sexually assaulted his former girlfriend early this morning after forcing his way at gunpoint into her Conley, Georgia, home -- about ten miles south of Atlanta. He then allegedly shot the ex-girlfriend's 64-year-old father in the head and chest before leaving with the children in the woman's car.
