Mom Dead, Dad In Custody, Girls Recovered

Three young girls missing since their mother was found dead at their home have been found safe, police in Michigan said Tuesday.

The girls were with their father, who's now in custody, Saginaw police said.

Police Lt. Tammy Luty said a tip led Shiawassee County authorities to a car where the girls were being held by the father midday Tuesday.

Luty says "the children are all safe and well."

Saginaw police found the body of 32-year-old Erica Olguin at her home Monday after she failed to pick up her 11-year-old son at school. Police issued a nationwide Amber Alert for her daughters, 3-year-old Victoria, 5-year-old Lilliana and 9-year-old Elena.

Police say the girls' 35-year-old father, Jose Olguin, drove the girls to Elkhart, Ind., on Monday.

Police had not issued a warrant for him but said they very much wanted to find him.
