SEATTLE – Washington State Patrol has canceled an AMBER Alert for several children Seattle Police say were abducted by their own parents Tuesday.
The suspect vehicle was a 28-foot, tan 1992 Bounder motorhome with a Washington plate number of “BPP8654” driven by 42-year-old Nicholas Antonie.
A judge recently ordered Antonie and his wife Crystal to turn their children over to Child Protective Services before the two allegedly abducted them and fled.
WSP says the family was located in Cheney, Washington, near Spokane around 7 p.m. The children were found safe and the parents were taken into custody.
Antonie has a history of psychiatric treatment and has threatened social workers in the past. Police believe he may have been armed with an AR-15. Crystal also has a history of mental health problems and substance abuse.
Police believed the motorhome may have been headed north to Orcas Islands or to Tennessee or Ohio.
