Two children, Kimberly and Kelly Yates, reported missing way back in 1985, have emerged in the Houston area. Their birth mother, Elaine Yates, has been charged with snatching them, say Rhode Island State Police.

Police said, Yates, 69, was arrested after an anonymous tip led them to Kimberly and Kelly Yates, who were snatched over three decades ago. The trio were found living under assumed identities in the Houston area, police said Tuesday. The sisters were said to be in good health.

Police say their father has been informed and is “relieved.” It will be up to the daughters whether or not to make contact with him.

Yates is now facing two counts of child snatching and could face up to 20 years in prison under state law.
