An Amber Alert issued Thursday was called off after two missing children were found safe.
Police say 4-year-old Dyniste S. Finley and 3-year-old Dejavante D Finley were taken by their father.
The boys are now in custody of DCFS, but police are still searching for their father, 23-year-old Dejavente Finely.
Police say Finely went to the home of the children’s mothers in Zion Thursday and assaulted her and threatened her. He told her she had to go to to the public defender’s office in Waukegan and recant what she told them about two previous domestic violence cases. The woman called the office to report what was happening and police were called.
Finely fled the scene with the two children in the backseat of his vehicle.
Shortly after, he brought them to a family members home in North Chicago who turned the children over to DCFS officials.
Police continue to search for Finely.
