Children at centre of Saskatchewan Amber Alert found safe

Amber Alert kids found safe

The children at the centre of a Saskatchewan Amber Alert have been found safe.

The Turner County Sheriff's Office in South Dakota says the children and a suspect have been found and the Amber Alert has been cancelled.

Saskatchewan RCMP previously said the children were believed to be in the company of a convicted sex offender and extended the Amber Alert into the U.S as the children were believed to have travelled to South Dakota.

RCMP Chief Supt. Tyler Bates said police were concerned for the well-being of the children, believed to be with their mother and 50-year-old Benjamin Martin Moore.

Bates said Moore has a history of sexual offences against children and was previously convicted of sexual interference with a minor.

He was being investigated by social services when he left with the children and their mother.
