EASLEY, SC (WIS) - Two South Carolina children who were reported missing are found in Ohio.
Bazetta Police Officer Joe Sofcheck says he stopped a vehicle with Keyle and Belinda Wade, one-year-old Kynadi Leigh Grace Manley and two-year-old Alexis London Marie Manley all in the car around 1:30pm Thursday, east of Cleveland.
After making contact with the vehicle, the Pickens County Sheriff's Office was contacted to determine the identity of the individuals. Ohio Family Services was brought in to ensure the safety and well-being of both kids.
Pickens County deputies said an AMBER Alert that was initially issued for two Easley toddlers Wednesday morning was based on a false report, but the children were still missing.
The State Law Enforcement Division issued an alert around 10:00am Wednesday after Lisa Jordan of Easley told deputies Kynadi and Alexis had been kidnapped from her home. Jordan also reported a burglary and car theft.
Upon investigation, deputies learned Jordan's report was false. Jordan is charged with four counts of filing a false report in reference to the two kidnappings, burglary and theft of a motor vehicle. The investigation is continuing to determine if other charges are appropriate.
Deputies said SLED canceled the AMBER Alert around 5:00pm.
