Missing Long Beach woman, two children reunited with families
The woman and two children who were reported missing in Long Beach last weekend have been released to their families as police continue to investigate how and why they went missing.
Long Beach police confirmed that Marie Williams, 25, Sarah White, 8, and Nicholas Sanders, 6, were found at a Metrolink station in Sylmar on Monday morning after a commuter recognized the three and alerted police.
In a statement released Monday night, authorities said that the mentally disabled woman and two children had been traveling around the city using public transportation before eventually making their way to Sylmar.
As of Monday afternoon, Long Beach police spokeswoman Lisa Massacani said no arrests had been made and all three people were “safe and uninjured.” She said the investigation is ongoing.
The woman and two children are not related and left an apartment complex to go to a nearby restaurant Saturday night and never returned, police said in a previous statement.
