2 children taken from Nevada found in Sacramento

CREATED Aug 17, 2013

ELKO, Nev. (AP) -- Two Nevada children were found unharmed in Sacramento, Calif., after an Amber Alert was issued seeking their whereabouts.

Elko police Capt. Will Lehmann said the mother, Amber Schenck, voluntarily surrendered the children after relatives told her that an Amber Alert had been issued for their return.

The Amber Alert for 9-year-old Lillyanna Ramires and her 3-year-old brother, Martin Angel Rosales, was canceled Saturday.

Lehmann said the boy was already with Schenck on Wednesday when she was allowed visitation with the older girl, who was under the care of Nevada's child and family services.

Lehmann said Schenck was not arrested, but charges are likely.

Lehmann said the children were apparently taken by Schenck and Martin Cisneras Rosales.

Authorities said Rosales has a history of violence, leading to fear that the children were in danger.
