MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - Two toddlers at the center of an emergency missing child alert out of Mobile have been found and are safe, according to local law enforcement, after a standoff came to an end Thursday morning.

The children were found safe at a residence in Irvington, Alabama, also in Mobile County.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency had issued a statewide alert on behalf of the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, which was searching for Annelise Caballero, 1, and Kevin Caballero, 2.

A suspect, James Carl Caballero, has been taken into custody and charges are pending following a standoff at the residence where he and the children were found.

According to reports from WPMI in Mobile, Caballero reportedly attempted to breach Penelope House, a place for those looking to escape domestic violence, in an attempt to find the children’s mother earlier this week.

Caballero is already facing other charges prior to this incident, including domestic violence strangulation.
