A lawyer for the children's father, Jason Lewis, said the boys live with their father in Vernon, and that Morris has visitation rights. Lewis called police on Monday night after Morris failed to return the children from a weekend visit. Authorities are returning the boys to their father, and Morris faces possible criminal charges.
Officials previously issued a Silver Alert for the boys. Morris's relatives told police that the boys' mother had a history of mental health problems.
