Nearly a Year After Going Missing, Two Kidnapped Children Found After Routine Vehicle Tag Check

Two children reported missing in Missouri in March were found last week in Florida.

The children were identified as Brooke Gilley, 11, and Adrian Gilley, 12,  according to Fox News.

Kristi Nicole Gilley, 36,  the non-custodial mother of the children was arrested, according to NBC.

Florida’s High Springs Police Department, in north central Florida outside Gainesville, posted news about the recovery on Facebook.

“On February 1, 2023, HSPD located two abducted Missouri children and their abductor after a routine vehicle tag check indicated the vehicle owner was a fugitive,” the post stated.

The post said Gilley and the children were found inside a Winn Dixie grocery store.

All three were disguised, the post stated without details.

According to NBC, Bryan Gilley, the children's father, said Kristi Gilley, his ex-wife, limited the children's interaction with strangers while she had them on the run.

"My kids were missing. I didn’t know where they are. … That’s the biggest fear in the world,” Gilley, 38, said in an interview Monday, NBC reported. “It is an understatement to say I was terrified and freaked out.”

Adrian Gilley has Down's syndrome, NBC reported.

Kristi Gilley was held on a kidnapping warrant issued in Clay County, Missouri, the post stated.

The children were turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families. They will eventually be reunited with their custodial family, the post said.

At one point, the children were suspected to have been in California with Gilley, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.

Police did not release the circumstances of how the children were taken from Missouri.

The Liberty, Missouri, Police Department posted a celebratory message on Facebook.

“Both Gilley kids have been safely located out of state,” the post stated.

“Thank you to everyone who shared this post as it helped bring these children home!!!"
