Authorities in South Texas have canceled an Amber Alert for three children who were allegedly taken from school by their grandmother on Thursday.

Jose Olvera, Juan Garcia and Liza Garcia have been located and are safe.

Police in Somerset, which is southwest of San Antonio, earlier said that school officials mistakenly released the children to their grandmother, Elida Leal, on Thursday afternoon.

The three children are in Texas Child Protective Services custody, but the school called the grandmother to pick up the children when one or more of them became sick, investigators say. The school had not updated its emergency contact list.
