Two young siblings who disappeared from Missouri last year were reunited with their fugitive mother, all dressed in disguise, at a Florida supermarket last week, police said.
Brooke and Adrian Gilley, 11 and 12, disappeared last March and were believed to have been abducted by their biological mother, who did not have custody of them at the time.
The three were located at the One Dixie Market in High Springs last week after a routine traffic check of their mother, Christy Gilley’s vehicle, revealed she was fleeing from Missouri cops.
High Springs police found Gully, 36, and her children inside the supermarket while they were shopping and arrested her.
Details about why he was stripped of custody and how he kidnapped the children were not immediately available.
High Springs is located 20 miles from Gainesville.
Gulley remained behind bars in Florida on Sunday, and will be brought back to Missouri to face charges there.
An update from the Liberty Police Department in Missouri said: “Both of Gully’s children have been safely placed out of state. Their non-custodial mother is being held on suspicion of parental kidnapping… Thanks to everyone who shared this post because it helped bring these babies home.
Both children have been turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families and will be released to relatives in Missouri, officials said.
He was found in good health.
Gilley initially abducted the children from Clay County, a suburb of Kansas City, and managed to elude authorities for nearly a year.
