CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- The missing mothers and their three children in Green Cove Springs have now been found safe in North Carolina. The Clay County Sheriff's Office issued an alert Saturday for 23-year-old Brittany Miller-Leichty and 34-year-old Thelma Leichty along with their children 6-year-old Alexzander Rogers, 7-year-old Kelly Barnard and 13-year-old Caitlyn Barnard.
CCSO says the group was last seen on January 30, 2013. The Sheriff's Office says the women's husbands contacted them saying they were concerned for their welfare and that of the three children between them.
