INDIANA (January 10, 2015) — Two children who were reported missing from Delaware on Friday, were  found in Southern Indiana on Saturday.

The Delaware State Police issued an Amber Alert for 4 year-old Colette Hamilton and her brother, 4 month-old Cortez Hamilton, Jr., of Smyrna, Delaware.

Both children, along with their mother, 35-year-old Keisha Hamilton, had not been seen since 10 p.m. on Friday.

Around 7 p.m. Saturday evening, Delaware authorities informed the Indiana State Police that they had received information that the children and their father, Cortez Hamilton, Sr., were traveling to St. Louis, Missouri via the Interstate 64 corridor in a red 2005 Chevrolet Suburban.

Just after 7:30 p.m. a State Police officer saw a large red SUV with a Delaware license plate traveling west on I-64.

The officers pulled the vehicle over and asked the driver, later identified as Hamilton Sr., to get out of the vehicle.

Both of the children were found in the backseat of the car, safely inside the vehicle.

Hamilton, Sr., was taken to the Evansville State Police Post where investigators are working with Delaware State Police.
