SUGAR LAND, Texas – The two children that were reportedly taken by their father under “suspicious circumstances” have been found safe Thursday morning.

The father, Taylor Hudson-Oneal, was taken into custody after police say they found him in the children’s mother’s apartment.

According to police, Hudson-Oneal, his ex-girlfriend, and their two children were visiting his ex-girlfriend’s mother at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital when he unexpectedly left in the ex-girlfriend’s silver Volkswagen Passat (license plate number PRK 5816), taking the children with him.

According to investigators, Hudson-Oneal is not the primary caregiver of the children, who have been identified as 18-month-old Elena Barras and 4-month-old Emmanuel Barras. He does not live with the children and has limited contact with them, police said.

Investigators said there have not been any custody issues between the two parents and Hudson-Oneal has not had any involvement with the kids. He also does not have a primary residence and stays with other people, police said.
