WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities have found two girls whose father is accused of crashing a car into a Wichita hotel room and abducting them.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1U8luY5 ) reports that the 5- and 2-year-old girls were located shortly before 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at a Wichita home after an Amber Alert was issued. A Sedgwick County emergency dispatcher says that the vehicle used in the abduction was found abandoned around noon. Authorities continue searching for the father.

Wichita police say the father crashed into a room at a Days Inn around 1 a.m. Wednesday after arguing with his girlfriend on the phone. The girlfriend also had her 1-year-old daughter with her. They weren’t hurt.

Police crime tape was draped across the splintered exterior of the room and dry wall was littering the room’s floor.
