Texas authorities locate abducted one-year-old and seven-year-old
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.
