The children, ages 4 and 7, were from Mexico and were carrying a note that had addresses in Alabama. They were found by DPS troopers who were working Operation Lone Star, a joint law enforcement initiative to combat illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

The children were taken to a hospital for evaluation and then released to the custody of the Department of Family and Protective Services.
