Missing Arkansas children found in Oklahoma, mother arrested

The Associated Press - August 24, 2018 10:23 am

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) – Authorities say four missing Arkansas children have been found in Oklahoma and the mother of the four was arrested.
Inspector Cory Thomas with the Western Arkansas Fugitive Task Force says the 1- to 7-year-old children were Thursday at an apartment complex in Owasso, Oklahoma.
The children’s mother – 29-year-old Lacee Pattengill – was arrested on a felony warrant of interference with custody.
Thomas said Pattengill fled the Bentonville area with the children the paternal grandparents were awarded temporary emergency custody earlier this month.
Jail records show Pattengill is being held in the Tulsa County jail pending extradition to Benton County, Arkansas.
