THORNTON, Colo. — Two children who the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said were taken by their father "in violation of current court orders," have been found safe.

Investigators said previously that the two children were last seen around 4 p.m. Saturday in the Central Park area of Denver. Investigators said they believed Gabriel Rensch Sr. took the children and may have gone to Laramie, Wyoming.

The children were found with their father at a home in Laramie, according to a spokesman for Thornton Police (TPD).

The CBI sent out an Endangered Missing Alert for the children Tuesday evening on behalf of the TPD. Police said Rensch did not have his phone with him, and no one had been able to contact him. Rensch failed to return the children per a court custody order, police said.

Rensch is in custody on a warrant that was issued due to the court order violation, TPD said. Detectives are evaluating other possible charges.
