Missing Ga. boys located in Texas, father held

ATLANTA (AP) - Police said two young boys from Georgia who were reported missing this week have been located in Texas and their father is in custody and facing charges.

Brothers Ben and Henry Cleary -- ages 9 and 7 -- were visiting with their father, Daniel Cleary, of Roswell, and were supposed to return home Wednesday. An Amber Alert was issued Thursday.

Roswell Police Lt. James H. McGee said authorities learned Saturday evening that the 46-year-old Daniel Cleary had been pulled over in Austin, Texas and placed in custody. McGee said "we have recovered the kids. They were with him and they were OK."

The children's mother is on the way to get them.

McGee said authorities will arrange for Daniel Cleary's extradition. He faces a charge of interstate interference with custody, a felony.
