Officials said 5-year-old Autumn Gentry, 6-year-old Meadow Gentry, and 3-year-old Kole Gentry—along with their mother—were found in Indiana, Fox5 reported.
The children were said to have been abducted by their father, Marshall Aaron Gentry, at around 12 p.m. Wednesday in St. Mary’s, Georgia, the Camden County Sheriff’s Office said.
According to WSFA, officials also found their father with the children. Indiana authorities are now trying to investigate whether they voluntarily left Georgia.
The Amber Alert had said the children were with their father, who was said to be heavily armed, while officials said the children were in extreme danger. Investigators said at the time that Marshall Gentry is “known to be suicidal and heavily armed.”
A woman claiming to be the mother of the children said, “I am the wife and I am safe I have my children no one has been abducted. It’s a false report I have video chatted with authorities,” First Coast News reported.
Marshall Gentry and his wife are going through a divorce, Camden deputies told the station. They were seen picking up their children Wednesday. Deputies said Marshall Gentry is in the U.S. Navy and was living in a pop-up camper.
The family is cooperating with law enforcement, police said. The case is being investigated.
