MESA COUNTY, Colo. — A Mesa County mother and her three young children have been located in Evans and are safe, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (CBI).

A citizen recognized the family from a statewide alert and an Evans police officer made contact with them and determined that everyone was safe and healthy, the Mesa County Sheriff's Office said.

A family member reported Shiann Moore, 27, of Clifton, Colo. and her children missing on Monday after they had not heard from them since Saturday, the sheriff's office said. 

At the time, the sheriff's office said they did not have any information to indicate the family was in immediate danger, but would like to verify Moore and her children are safe.
