UPDATE: Missing children found in Des Moines

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES (AP) -- Authorities in Des Moines say they have taken into custody a man wanted in connection with an Amber Alert issued in Illinois.

Authorities in the Chicago suburb of Harvey on Monday issued an Amber Alert for 8-year-old Kendall Carr and his 2-year-old sister, Kenni.

The children were seen being taken away in a gray minivan with Iowa license plates. They were recovered in Des Moines on Tuesday.

While authorities in Iowa haven't identified the man in custody, police in Harvey say the children were taken by a 39-year-old man named Kent Carr, a relative of the children.

The man in custody was taken to the Federal Building in Des Moines, but it's unclear if he will be charged in the incident.
