SUWANEE, GA (CNN/WSB, KVUE) -- Two Georgia boys who have been missing since before Christmas are at home now safe and sound. Police found them in Texas after a nationwide Amber Alert.
Thankful for all the prayers and support, Theresa Nash stands in front of her Suwannee home holding her two boys, Henry and Ben, a little tighter. The joy and relief easy to see on her face after a week of uncertainty and concern. She says, "We're pretty tired. We had two hours of sleep last night and we've been hugging and kissing and saying I love you, I love you more, I love you, I love you more, but I love them more and they're insisting that they love me more."
Authorities say the boys' father, Daniel Cleary, failed to bring them back to their mother's home for Christmas, prompting a national search for the children.
They were found at an Austin, Texas motel yesterday. Cleary was taken into custody.
Nash traveled to Texas Saturday night to be reunited with her boys. The three flew back Sunday afternoon and after a quick stop at home. They came out to this park to hug, to play and to thank those who prayed so much for their safe return. Nash says, "Everywhere we go people are hugging us and kissing us and praying with us and we are so thankful to every single person that helped to bring their daddy and Benny and Henry home safe. Whatever we do, everything feels at peace. It doesn't matter what we're doing, everything feels at peace now."
The boys' father faces charges of interfering with child custody.
