Two missing children reported as abducted by their non-custodial mother in Grayson County have been found safely in Tennessee, according to an update from the Grayson County Sheriff.
The girls, 8-year-old Carlie Geary and 5-year-old Chyenne Williams were taken by their non-custodial parent, 31-year-old Ellen Maples from their home on Grayson Springs Road Thursday.
Grayson County Sheriff Norman Chaffins said that on Sunday at 11:05 a.m., a traffic stop was conducted in Grundy County, Tennessee with Maples’ vehicle after communication between the two sheriff’s departments.
Maples exited the vehicle during the stop, but resisted police and had to be tased multiple times, according to the release.
Sheriff Chaffins said Maples continued to fight Grundy County deputies, but was eventually arrested and booked in the Grundy County Detention Center.
The two girls were found safe inside the van and taken to a separate safe location where they will wait for social workers to bring them back to Kentucky.
