Missing children safe at home

April 16, 2007

Albany -- Five missing Albany children have been found, and were re-united with their parents.

Late Saturday evening, 41-year-old Earl Zeigler Senior took all five kids to Turtle Park in downtown Albany -- only he never returned them home.

They were found overnight after attempts to reach the father repeatedly failed.

Family members tell us that about 4:30 this morning the five kids were returned by 41-year old Earl Ziegler Senior. Ziegler is the father and uncle of the children.

The family says Ziegler and the kids slept in his truck, and went to several homes Sunday.

Albany Police arrested Ziegler Monday morning on parole violations, and turned him over the Federal Marshals. He has been taken to Macon, where he is scheduled to have a hearing tomorrow.

Three of the children were Zeigler's, and two were his niece and nephew.
