AMBER ALERT CANCELED: Kylee & Blake Nichols
OKLAHOMA CITY --A woman is in custody, after abducting her two children.
Police say Misty Hausam only had supervised visitation rights of her kids Kylee and Blake, and believe she abducted them some time Thursday morning.
"Apparently my daughter came here in the middle of the night, to the kids' dad's house and took the children out" says Susan Bullard, the kids' grandmother.
Bullard says Hausam had threatened to take the kids before, and is a known drug user. Bullard says Hausam recently became upset during one of her visits with her kids.
"The last one, the Friday after Christmas did not go well, she threatened to take the kids, she was calling some people on the phone to come get her and the kids" says Bullard.
Police say both kids and Hausam were found at the Sooner Haven apartments in Oklahoma City.
She was taken into custody, while the children's father drove from Wellston to pick them up.
"It's very traumatic, and it's just one of those things you don't know how to explain until you go through it, and you still don't know how to explain it" says Coy Nichols, the kids' father.
Police are still looking into why Hausam abducted the children, and why they were taken to Oklahoma City.
