Missing children from Tennessee found in Montana

Two children police say were abducted by their father have been found safe in Montana.

7-year-old Jedidiah Skees and 4-year-old Samantha Skees hadn't been seen since February 5. On that day, police say they were in London with their father, Clifford Skees.

Police say Clifford Skees was supposed to return the children to their mother, in Sevierville, Tennessee, February 5.

U.S. Marshals say they got a tip recently that said Clifford Skees had attended a small church in Lolo, Montana.

Police investigated, and later found the children at the Ponderosa Lodge in Missoula.

Both children are now with a child protective services agency. Skees is charged with custodial interference and violating a protective order. Investigators say other charges are pending.
