CASTLE ROCK, Colo. — Castle Rock police asked for help Saturday in locating a pair of children who they believed may have been in danger potentially from their own mother.

However, after police had notified the media of the situation, the woman voluntarily brought the children to the Castle Rock Police station later in the evening to verify that the children were safe, police said.

Lahnaiya Palmer, 5; and Kahvarri Shelton, 2, were previously seen with their mother on Thursday outside of a daycare provider’s address near 5th and Gilbert streets.

Their mother, 30-year-old Monisha Bush, is under investigation for child abuse, police said. Investigators became concerned when the three could not be found for an extended period of time.

But the situation is apparently not as dire as originally thought: No Amber Alert was issued for the children, and Bush has not been charged with any crime so far.

    I am happy this turned out to be an okay situation. Had some people concerned. Better to be safe than sorry.
