Missing Rochester children found in Niagara Falls home

Five Rochester children missing since August were found at a home in Niagara Falls on Wednesday, according to the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle.

Two people from Rochester, including a woman who was identified as the mother of two of the children, were taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service, the D&C reported Thursday.

The five children, who ranged in age from 5 to 12, were reported missing by a family member Aug. 14. The two people charged were Mark Johnson, 51, and Ise-Lynn Johnson, 27, the D&C reported, citing information from the Marshals Service.

Mark Johnson is related to all five children, according to the D&C. The children were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester for evaluation and were released, according to the report.

A spokeswoman for the Marshals Service in the Western District of New York said she did not have information Thursday morning about the arrests.
