An Amber Alert for a brother and sister in Shasta County has been canceled. The California Highway Patrol reports that Mya Sandoval, 4, and Michael Sandoval, 7, have been found and are safe.
No further details about their recovery were immediately available.
Sgt. John Hubbard of the Shasta County Sheriff's Department said earlier this evening that the children's parents had asked April Joy Swartz, 31, to care for their children Sunday afternoon while they tended to some personal business. Swartz telephoned them later and said she planned to take her three children, all 5 year old and younger, fishing and asked if she could take the Sandoval children along. The parents gave their permission, but when Swartz failed to return the youngsters Sunday night, their parents reported them missing.
