According to CBS Chicago, the Lake County Sheriff's Department announced Sunday evening that Aneta Marsek and her children - 2-year-old Chevelle and 4-month-old Macenzi - were found in the Wisconsin Dells "relatively healthy and safe."

Marsek's estranged husband, Dan Marsek, reported the 33-year-old Volo woman missing last week. His wife's cell phone had not been active for days, the Lake County Sheriff's Department confirmed Sunday, and family members had not heard from her since Oct. 6.

Aneta Marsek's father, John Czaja, told CBS Chicago that his daughter was being treated at a hospital early Monday. He did not disclose where his daughter is being treated, saying only that she "needs help." Czaja said the children were in the care of their father, Dan Marsek.

Asked why his daughter would go to the Dells without telling anyone, Czaja said he could not answer that., CBS Chicago reports.

Police reportedly said more details in the case would be released Monday.
