Three Missouri children who were abducted by their mother more than two years ago have been found in Texas. 

U.S. Marshals discovered Shawn Rodriguez, 42, and her three missing children, Daniel, David and Ariana Olivera on Thursday at a home in Arlington, Texas. The children are now nine, six and three, respectively. 

According to the U.S. Marshals, Rodriguez took her three children, who were all under the age of seven at the time, and fled Missouri in August 2017. 

It was thought she could be headed to California at the time, but she had been on the run ever since and her children were deemed missing, according to KCTV News.

A warrant was issued earlier this year for the children’s mother Shawn Rodriguez for kidnappin them in 2017 

Earlier this year, the children’s father was granted full custody and a warrant for Rodriguez’s arrest for parental kidnapping was issued in Saline County, Missouri. 

The children were officially deemed missing in July 2019.  

After the father was granted custody, the Saline County Sheriff’s Office reached out the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to request assistance. 

The case was then referred to the United States Marshals Service in the Western District of Missouri.

An investigation was then launched by the US.. Marshals and by October, they zeroed in on the Dallas-Fort Worth area in Texas. 

U.S. Marshals from the Northern District of Texas and local authorities took Rodriguez into custody Thursday.

She was awaiting extradition to Missouri.

The children were taken into the care of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services while they wait to be reunited with their father.
