Authorities say four children reported missing from Riverdale, Ga., have been found in Indiana.

According to the Riverdale Police Department, 6-year-old Anthony Delaney, 4-year-old Zymeer Delaney, 3-year-old Jeramiah Leavell and 2-year-old Osiyrus Leavell were reported missing on Monday.

Riverdale Chief of Police Samuel Patterson said the children were believed to be with their mother, Sasha Kiear Delaney, and their father. A grandmother of the children has custody of them as their parents allegedly have an extensive history with DFCS, police said. The incident was described as "an interruption of custody."

The parents went to pick up the children on Saturday, but then failed to return them. When the grandmother went to pick up the kids, they were nowhere to be found.

The kids were found on Monday afternoon at a grandparent's home in Indiana with their parents. Police are questioning their parents. The children were said to be okay.

Riverdale police issued an arrest warrant for the parents.
