ANDERSON, Ind. (WANE) – An earlier statewide Amber Alert has been canceled.

WANE-TV sister station in Indianapolis, WISH-TV, reported the suspect and children were found in Illinois.

The Herald Bulletin reported the children were unharmed and Rindahl was arrested. An Anderson police spokesman told the newspaper Rindahl took the children after a reported domestic abuse incident earlier Sunday. The paper cited court records that the children’s mother filed for divorce from RIndahl June 7 and she was issued emergency custody June 22.

Earlier Sunday, police issued a statewide Amber Alert. Anderson police said Rindahl had abducted three children, Adyson, Peyton, and Jayden.

The girls, ages 2, 2, and 8-months, were believed to be in extreme danger.

No other information was immediately available from police.
