Mekielle Yaneek Pullins

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Police canceled an Amber Alert issued for three Indianapolis children after they were found unharmed on the city’s near northwest side Tuesday night.

Authorities say the kids were abducted by their mother, 22-year-old Mekielle Yaneek Pullins. The 2-year-old, 3-year-old and 7-year-old were believed to be in danger at the time the Amber Alert was declared.

Detectives with the Metropolitan Police Department say they received information that Mekielle made threats and other statements to harm the children.

IMPD says the children were found in the 2000 block of North Luett Ave. and then taken into the care of the Department of Child Services for safety.

Authorities say Mekielle had left the area before officers arrived. Police are continuing to look for her.

Court records show Mekielle had domestic violence, criminal recklessness, disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement charges filed against her in Johnson County on May 11 of this year. Franklin and Greenwood police each filed charges against her, stemming from the same incident, which involved two of her children.

Editor’s note: The photos and identities of the children involved in the Amber Alert have been removed to help protect their identities.
