Four children who were reported missing after their grandparents were shot to death were found safe Saturday, but their father remained at large, authorities said.

Neighbors reported seeing James T. Moran leave the mobile home where the shootings took place Friday evening, police Sgt. Randy Maynard said. Cpl. Tim Scott said the victims were the children’s maternal grandparents.

They were identified as Glenn Dale Carr, 57, and his wife, Debra Jolene Carr, 50.

The children were found at the home of Moran’s parents in Lake Moses early Saturday.

“The kids are fine,” Scott said.

An arrest warrant had been issued for the children’s father, officials said.

The children’s mother had been in Arkansas; Scott said he did not know the status of the Morans’ marriage.

An Amber Alert had gone out for the four children, ages 5 to 10. The alert sends a description of a missing child and of a suspect’s vehicle to state broadcasters and electronic highway signs.
