Three northwest Iowa girls are safe this morning after being abducted yesterday.

The three girls, 4-year-old Olivia Sophia Arzaga, and 8-year-old twins Adia Johnson-Enos, and Lillian Johnson-Enos were found "safe and sound" Tuesday night, in Sanborn, Iowa.

Authorities say they showed up at an address in Sanborn after being abandoned.

Authorities have not found her.

Investigators believe she was driving a 2003 maroon colored Cadillac CTS with Iowa license plate 561XEY.

The girls were taken in by the Department of Human Services, and taken to an undisclosed location.


UPDATE:  The AMBER Alert has been canceled.  The children have been found safely, according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities are looking for a 2003 maroon, 4 door Cadillac CTS, with Iowa license plate number: 561 XEY driven by 25-year-old Danica Noel Arzaga. 

The vehicle was possibly traveling in Northern Iowa or Minnesota. 

The children are eight-year-old Adia Johnson-Enos, eight-year-old Lillian Johnson-Enos, and four-year-old Olivia Sophia Arzaga.
