LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say they've located five runaway siblings who range in age from 7 to 14.
Authorities said Wednesday afternoon that the children were found safe in the northwest part of Las Vegas near Lake Mead Boulevard and Buffalo Drive. They're being sent back to the Child Haven childcare center.
Police asked the public for help finding the Nicholas siblings, who had last been seen Tuesday afternoon.
The children are 7-year-old Demetri, 9-year-old Sarah, 11 year-old Luchiano, 13-year-old Violet and 14-year-old Savannah.
The Las Vegas Sun reports they ran away from the childcare center and asked a woman for a ride to an estranged relative's house. The woman said she didn't know the kids were runaways.
