The Cascade County Sheriff’s Office reported Thursday that two people accused of abducting three children in Great Falls, Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, were in custody and the three children were safe.

The noncustodial parents of the children, Tony Demontigny, 28, and Ellaura Wright, 30, are accused of taking the children, 5- and 3-year-old girls and a 1-year-old boy.

The Montana Department of Justice issued at about 11 a.m. Thursday an Amber Alert on the abduction, saying Demontigny and Wright have a history of drug use and violence, and the children were believed to be in life-threatening danger.

The Amber Alert was canceled at 3:58 p.m. Thursday.

A Cascade County Sheriff’s deputy referred all questions from the Havre Daily News this morning to the sheriff’s office captain of operations, but said that captain was not on duty today.

The sheriff’s office Facebook post and the Amber Alert cancellation did not provide details on the children being found and the arrest.

KRTV reports that Cascade County Sheriff Jesse Slaughter said during a press conference Thursday afternoon that the children were found in Idaho.

Demontigny and Wright are facing three felony charges of custodial interference and Demontigny’s father, Anthony Demontigny Sr., is facing three charges of accountability to custodial interference, KRTV reports.
