Two missing Missouri children found at Florida supermarket nearly one year later

The children were found Wednesday at a Winn-Dixie with their noncustodial mother, Kristi Nicole Gilley.

Two kidnapped Missouri children were found at a supermarket in Florida after nearly a year of being missing, police said.

The children had been missing since March 15, the High Springs Police Department in Florida said. They were found Wednesday at a Florida Winn-Dixie with their noncustodial mother, Kristi Nicole Gilley, police said.

Gilley, 36, was detained and arrested on an active kidnapping warrant out of Clay County, Missouri, they said.

Officers were able to find the two children after a routine tag check on Gilley's vehicle, which indicated that the vehicle's owner was a fugitive, police said.

The three were identified, despite having disguised their identities. It was not immediately clear how exactly their identities were disguised.

The children were turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families Services and will be reunited with their family, police said.
