Four-month-old Antoin Marsh and 1-year-old Destiny Marsh were reported missing Sunday afternoon, according to Fayetteville police. Their mother Catrina Lucas, 20, is accused of abducting them from their grandmother’s home on Winter Park Drive.

Lucas and the children were located somewhere in New York state or New York City, according to public information officer Sgt. Shawn Strepay of the Fayetteville Police Department.
