The kids’ foster mother realized they were gone when she woke up that day at their home in the 3900 block of Buteo Lane, according to Officer Chrissie Coon.
The boys apparently packed before departing, taking clothes, toys and scooters with them.
North Las Vegas detectives found the boys staying with an unidentified biological family member, according to Coon. The boys were unharmed and were turned over to Clark County Child Protective Services without incident.
