Bienville Parish, LA (KMSS) — Louisiana authorities have found safe two young children who were allegedly abducted from their foster home by their non-custodial parents earlier this week.
On Thursday evening, James Fraiser, Sr., 43, and Mary Graham, 29, both of Benton, were located and arrested in Bienville Parish on simple kidnapping charges.
Both children, James Kevin Fraiser, Jr., 7, and Gracie Fraiser, 1, were found with them and returned to the state.
A statewide alert was put out to the public Tuesday after the kids had been taken the day before from a Benton foster home.
James Fraiser was arrested in 2011 for allegedly hitting his live-in girlfriend several times in the face while she was holding their then-one-month-old child.
Louisiana authorities would like to thank everyone for their help in finding these children.
