UPDATE:

An Amber Alert issued yesterday has been canceled after two children were reportedly found safe in Great Falls.

Just after 8 a.m. Tuesday, multiple news outlets began posting on Twitter that the alert was canceled and the children were safe. Attorney General Tim Fox (@AGTimFox) tweeted the information just after 8 a.m.

The alert went out Monday afternoon when Abbigail Stratton (4 months old) and Gabriella Stratton (2 years old) were abducted by their non-custodial parents “under life threatening circumstances.”

Later that night, one of the suspects, Maria Sandoval, was taken into custody in Vaughn, Cascade County. Reports indicate the other suspect, Donald Ira Stratton, was taken into custody this morning.


 

UPDATE: One suspect is in custody, but a male suspect and the two children have not been located as of 8 p.m.

Maria Sandoval is in custody in Vaughn, Cascade County.

The two children, Abbigail Stratton (4 months old) and Gabriella Stratton (2 years old) were last seen in Billings.
