Missing siblings 6-year-old Braxton Williams and 5-year-old Bri’ya Williams were found safe in the woods not far from their home on Tuesday afternoon, three sources tell CBS affiliate Action News Jax.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an AMBER Alert for the two children from Jacksonville Sunday morning.

Action News JAX reports: A woman who said she is the mother’s cousin said she was at the scene where the children were found. She told Action News Jax reporter Elizabeth Pace that she saw searchers celebrating and when she asked them what was happening they told her that the children were found safe. She said that she didn’t get to see the children, but search and rescue told her the children were safe.
