    Do you have a link? Their missing kids posters are still active and news stations are still reporting it: http://www.theindychannel.com/news/l...west-lafayette

    I know sometimes news won't correct until the morning though if they are found in the middle of the night.

    The West Layette Police Department is seeking Victoria Whorton, 27, after she allegedly abducted her four children.

    Whorton is 5’2″ and 145 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

    Whorton and her four children were last seen August 3 in West Lafayette.
    The children are believed to be in extreme danger.

    So far there's been no reports that I can find saying the Amber Alert is cancelled. I've got WDRB's Twitter open to monitor. They've been reporting the most on this case so hopefully if something changes we'll see it right away. I'm going to bed but I'm leaving the tab open. With luck I'll wake up to see these precious children found.

    I was hoping they would be found when I came back this morning too, but their missing posters are still active

    Beyond West Lafayette, is anyone saying where they were last seen/known to be? Or, where they were supposed to be and didn't arrive?

    I-65 runs through Lafayette - they could literally be ANYWHERE by now.
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    Interesting IMO that police are not seeking charges against the mother.

    Some quotes from an article:
    Police determined that Whorton was in Chicago with the children and made contact with her by phone, at which point she told police where she was, VanVactor said. Chicago Police then helped investigators verify that the kids were safe.
    VanVactor said that Whorton was not in police custody and that no charges were filed against her Saturday afternoon, but that Child Protective Services and the Tippecanoe County prosecutorís office may pursue charges in the future.
    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/08/...ette-children/

    It sounds like maybe she cooperated once she was found. She told them where she was at least. LE left open the possibility of charges in the future. I hope those babies will be in a home where they are loved and cared for.
