Authorities have found a Polk County mother who violated a court order, and took off with her two young children.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says Barbara Brown and her two daughters, 7-year-old Emily Brown, and 15-year-old Kennedy Little, were found safe in North Carolina.
According to the Lake Wales Police, investigators received information that Brown and her daughters were at a home they frequented in Kenansville. A sergeant with the Duplin County Sheriff's Office went to the house, and located the trio.
The children had not been harmed and are said to be in good health. They were taken into custody by the North Carolina Child Protection Agency, where they will await the arrival of the Florida Department of Children and Families.
At this point, Brown is not facing any criminal charges. The investigation is ongoing.
