HOUSTON -

Officials have cancelled an Amber Alert for three young children.

A Harris County Sheriff's Office homicide detective told Local 2 Vickirae Lopez and her three children were found near Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, northwest of Dallas around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

According to officials, 26-year-old Vickirae Lopez, picked up her three children from her mother's home in northeast Harris County around 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday to return to Las Vegas.

Lopez has been separated from her military husband, who is stationed in Las Vegas, for about a month.

According to officials, after leaving the Houston area, Lopez sent texts to her mother saying she was contemplating suicide with the children and possibly going to drive off a bridge.

Detectives told Local 2 the children are now in the custody of Child Protective Services and Lopez will be taken to get psychological testing.
