COLORADO, USA — Two young girls were found safe in Texas on Monday after the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) issued an Endangered Missing Alert for them.

The Colorado alert was issued on behalf of the Wyoming State Patrol, which said the non-custodial parent took the children from Buffalo, which is in northern Wyoming, about 10 a.m. Sunday. They were believed to be traveling through Colorado to Amarillo, Texas.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol said about 11 a.m. Monday that the girls, ages 2 and 4, were found safe in Texas and the alert was canceled.

The parent, 23-year-old Alexis Roth, was described as a white woman, about 5 feet 5 inches tall and 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. They were believed to be traveling in a white 2009 Dodge Caravan with a Wyoming license plate.

Investigators said a 3-month-old infant, who Roth does have custody of, was believed to be traveling with them.

The names and descriptions of the children were removed from this story after they were found safe.
