CASS COUNTY, Mo. - Three Harrisonville, Mo., children reported missing last week have been found in Canada with their non-custodial mother, Sherry Lynn Davis.
Calgary Police confirmed the three were found safe in a motorhome with their mother during a patrol.
Davis was arrested for felony interference with custody, according to a news conference from the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.
Calgary Police were tipped off when the mother and the children went to a shelter in Calgary to ask for help Tuesday night. When Davis refused to provide identification, the shelter became suspicious and did an internet search. When they found out who Davis was, they called Canadian police.
A phone with its battery taken out was found inside a vehicle reportedly belonging to the mother. Cass County authorities believe all the batteries were taken out of the children’s phones to prevent being tracked.
Canadian officials said they have no record of Davis and her children crossing the U.S. border into Canada.
For now, there is no word on when or if Davis will be extradited back to the U.S. or when the kids will be reunited with their father.
“I think any father would understand there was a great deal of relief. I think his first question was ‘How long is it going to take to get my kids back,’” Major Jeff Weber said.
