Three young children and their mother, a woman with a history of mental health issues, were the subject of an Amber alert this afternoon but have since been found safe in Houston.

The family from Brookshire, Texas consists of children Romon Reese, 10, Jacqulin Ballard, 8, Gracelyn Chachere, 1, and their mother, Tamara Harrison, 30.  Police in Brookshire alerted The Texas Division of Emergency Management who issued the alert.

A Houston TV station reports the children are now with their grandmother  and no charges are forthcoming.

Something to be thankful for, for certain.
