RACINE, Wis. (AP) - Racine County authorities say three missing children have been returned to Wisconsin from Mexico.

They say the 2-year-old, 8-year-old and 10-year-old went missing Feb. 5 and authorities believed they were in danger.

Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave said in a statement Saturday that the children left in the company of their mother and her boyfriend. Investigators believe the couple fled with the children after authorities issued warrants for man’s arrest on child abuse charges. The adults later left the children with a relative in the Mexican city of Silao.

Delagrave says the children are American citizens and spent their entire lives in the U.S. before they went missing.

Mexican authorities allowed the children to return home Friday and they were welcomed by close family members.
