Amber Alert canceled for two Houston area girls

HOUSTON, TX (KTRE) -

An Amber Alert for two Houston area girls has been called off after they were found safe.

According to KTRK Television in Houston, the father dropped the children off at a family members home in Huffman, TX, before turning himself in to authorities just blocks from where the search started.

 Earlier tonight the Texas Center for the Missing has issued a Houston regional amber alert for the two Harris county girls.

2 year-old Faith Adams and 4 year-old Heidi Adams were taken by their biological father, 32-year-old Charles D. Adams.

According to an earlier report by KTRK, it all unfolded around 5pm at a home in the 18000 block of Timber Way Drive in Atascocita after deputies responded to a domestic violence call, and found a woman beaten and bloody.

The KTRK report goes on to say that authorities thought the woman's two children were inside her home with a husband who had just beaten her, refusing to come out.

After deputies were unsuccessful at getting the husband to answer, a SWAT team moved in attempting several times to communicate with the man by phone and loudspeaker. Nearby residents also were evacuated.

When authorities found no one inside the home, they issued the Amber Alert for the two children.

Charles Adams is being charged with aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon.
