DALLAS - On Monday morning, around 10 a.m. deputies located seven-year-old Jorden Rodgers and one-year-old Julien Rodgers.

An amber alert had been issued for the children earlier that morning after their mother was found dead Sunday night . 

According to WWL-TV, the two boys were safely located at an apartment in northeast Dallas.

Dallas police said they believed the boys were abducted by their 33-year-old father, Johnnie Ray Palmore. 

Sgt. Warren Mitchell said Palmore was taken to a local hospital in critical condition after he suffered a self-inflicted wound.

"We are so grateful that no one else was injured in this incident," Mitchell said.

The children's eyes were "wide-open and they were looking around" when they were found, according to Mitchell.
