ALTO, N.M. (AP) - A Colorado woman accused of unlawfully taking her two daughters and triggering an Amber Alert has been apprehended in New Mexico.

Authorities say 30-year-old Kallisha Hughes and her children were found unharmed in the city of Alto on Saturday night.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation issued the alert earlier in the day.

They say Hughes, who lost her parental rights, forcibly took 5-year-old Kiarah Hughes and 3-year-old Brooklyn Hughes from their aunt’s home in Durango.

The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office says Hughes then drove off with the girls.

Both children are with authorities until they can be returned to family in Colorado.

Authorities say Hughes has an extensive criminal history.

She is being held on a warrant for kidnapping, burglary and violation of a restraining order.
