CAARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Three girls taken from Carroll County earlier this week have been located.

Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said Amariah Banks, Georgia Banks and Aujhanay Udhus were found safe in Arkansas.

As News 18 reported earlier this week, Leazenby said their biological mother, Leah Banks, took them from their grandmother's home in Carroll County. Banks no longer had custody of the girls.

Leazenby said Banks and her husband, Kevin Banks, were taken into custody Friday evening. They face charges of interfering with custody.

It was believed the girls had been taken to a home in Jonesboro, Arkansas, which is the last known address of the couple.
