Putnam police have canceled the Silver Alert that was issued yesterday for six siblings after they were found safe in Massachusetts.
The alert was issued Wednesday after the children failed to show up at school this week.
Police said 47-year-old Heidi Boyle and her children – 17-year-old Jenna Stebbins, 13-year-old Patrick Stebbins, 10-year-old Brendon Stebbins, 8-year-old Heather Stebbins, 6-year-old Sarah Stebbins, and 18-month-old Kerry Stebbins were safely located.
Investigators believe Boyle might have left the state to avoid DCF intervention. Police said there was no criminal element to their investigation and that they only wanted to check on the family’s wellbeing.
Officials said more information will be released later.
