3 Connecticut children, mother found safe in Maine

VERNON, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut have canceled a multistate Amber Alert after three missing boys were found safe in Maine with their mother, who was taken into custody.

Authorities say the boys and their mother, 32-year-old Jackie Morris, were found Tuesday morning at a motel in Bangor, Maine.

Police say the boys — 9-year-old Ryan Lewis and 7-year-old twins Dylan and Brandan Lewis — live with their father in Vernon, Connecticut, and Morris has visitation rights. Their father, Jason Lewis, called police Monday night after Morris failed to return the children from a weekend visit.

Authorities are returning the boys to their father. Morris faces possible criminal charges.

Police had said they were concerned for the children’s safety. Morris’ relatives told police she had a history of mental health problems.
