LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana State Police say an Amber Alert has been cancelled for a woman and four children who were missing from West Lafayette.

The alert was issued late Friday night for 8-year-old Anthony Ballard Jr., 7-year-old Azzura Ballard, 3-year-old Akira Ballard and 1-year-old Ahleiryah Ballard.

Indiana State Police Trooper Corey Dupuy confirms the children's mother, 27-year-old Victoria Whorton, took the children to Chicago and willingly brought them back to West Lafayette.
