Four New Hampshire children who were allegedly taken by their father to Colorado last week in a case of custodial interference have been found safe.
According to WJAR-TV, the children were found at about 5 p.m. Saturday when a Parks and Wildlife officer pulled over their father, Matthew Giovanditto, 30, of Taunton, Massachusetts, in the Colorado Springs area.
The children's mother had filed a police report Monday saying her ex-husband had driven their four children to Colorado and was refusing to bring them home. The mother has full custodial rights and made an agreement for their father to take the children for a short time while she got situated.
The children, who range from 3 to 9 years old, are safe with relatives, according to police.
Colorado State Police said Giovanditto was not taken into custody as no charges have been filed against him.
