A Colorado State Patrol trooper is credited with locating three young Idaho children traveling with a suspected child molester.

A 10, 9 and 6-year-old were found with two adults camping near the Vail Pass Rest Area by a state trooper.

An Amber Alert was issued Monday for the children, nearly two weeks after law enforcement began looking for them. Police have since placed Sarah Joy VanOcker-Dunn and 37-year-old Jason “Travis” Simon in custody.

Police believed the adults left Idaho with the children after they realized detectives were looking for Simon in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Simon is charged with sexual abuse of a child, and VanOcker-Dunn is being sought on a charge of custodial interference.
