Kidnapped Kids & Mother Found 04 Dec 12

The woman accused of kidnapping her 2 children from a foster home in Pemberton last week has been found. Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Captain Rich Murry says they cancelled the Crime Alert on Monday for 21-year-old Reina Gandarilla after she turned herself in and her children were located safe at a hotel in Mankato. Gandarilla had been staying at the Pemberton foster home with her 2-year-old son and 4-month-old daughter when the abduction occurred. She lost her parental rights earlier this year for not providing adequate living conditions for the children. A nationwide warrant was issued for her arrest after the children were taken, and she now faces criminal charges and the possibility of spending up to 2 years in prison.
