    Two young children under the care of Maine child welfare officials who had been missing for several days have been found unharmed.

    Rumford police Sgt. Douglas Maifeld said Sunday that the 3-year-old girl and her 1-year-old brother were returned by their mother to their former foster family in Lewiston over the weekend.

    The children are now in the care of the state Department of Health and Human Services.

    The children had been missing since Thursday when their mother failed to bring them to a scheduled visit with DHHS workers. The children now live with a foster family in Rumford.

    Maifield says the case has been turned over to the district attorney's office, which will decide if the mother should be charged.
