ROSWELL, Ga. -- Roswell Police say Ben and Henry Cleary are safe and sound in Austin, Texas.
Authorities say Daniel Cleary was pulled over in a traffic stop in Austin, Texas where he was taken into custody. The boys were not harmed.
Nine-year-old Ben Cleary and 7-year-old Henry Cleary had not been in touch with their mother since Dec. 22. They were last seen with their father, 46-year-old Daniel Cleary.
The boys' mother, Theresa Nash, said her sons visited the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga with their father. Daniel Nash shut off his cell phone on Dec. 23 after making one final call near Nashville. Theresa Nash said that her sons' father also emptied his house, abandoned his car and purchased a gun, and she fears for her children's safety.
Nash is on her way to Texas to bring the boys back home to Roswell.
