Search Is Over For Minnesota Siblings
Almost four months after 35-year-old Cindy Adler allegedly took off with her two kids, Maya and Rafael, to avoid a custodial hearing, cops in St. Paul, MN say Adler is in custody and the kids are safe.
Cops say on June 2nd, 2009, Adler walked into a YWMC Women's Shelter in Fargo, N.D. and tried to sign in with her real name. That's when the organization realized that there was an outstanding warrant for her and that the kids were listed as missing.
Adler is fighting extradition to Minnesota and the kids are currently in the Cass County Children Services.
