8 NYC kids who police say were taken by mom from foster care found in Pa.; parents in custody
NEW YORK (AP) ' New York City police say eight children taken from a child welfare agency by their mother last week have been found in Pennsylvania, and their parents are in custody.
Police said in a release early Tuesday that the children ' who range in age from 11 months to 11 years old ' were in good condition. Their parents, 28-year-old Shanel Nadal and 34-year-old Nephra Payne, were taken into custody in Harrisburg, Pa.
WHP-TV in Harrisburg reports the family was spending the night in a van with no license plate.
The children are in custody of Dauphin County Children and Youth Services.
Police say Nadal was visiting her children at the child agency in Queens on Sept. 19 when she took them.
The couple lost custody of the children in 2009.
