3 children police say were taken by a man after an argument with their mother have been recovered safely.

Police in Shreveport and Bossier were looking for the man and his car after he reportedly took off with the kids following the argument with his girlfriend Wednesday morning.

The man ended up taking the children to their grandmother's house in Shreveport, according to LTV. Bill Davis with the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office.

Davis says they are "safe and sound."

An Amber Alert was never issued. Davis says authorities were "erring on the side of caution" when they launched a search for the man and the children, who are all under the age of 10.

Police say the man, who is not the children's father, got into an argument with their mother as the couple were heading down Hwy 71. At some point, the two got out of the car, and the man threw a brick at the vehicle, causing damage to the windshield.

After that, he reportedly took off with the kids in the car and left their mother on the side of the road.

According to Lt. Davis, no charges will be filed.
