BROOKSHIRE, Texas — A mother and her three children have been found safe after an Amber Alert was issued Wednesday, the Brookeshire Police Department said.

Investigators said Tamara Harrison, 30, and her children had gone missing  around 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Galleria area. An Amber Alert was issued for the children Wednesday afternoon.

Her children are 10-year-old Romon Reese, 8-year-old Jacqulin Ballard and 1-year-old Gracelyn Chacere. Police warned Harris suffers from bipolar disorder and has not taken her medication.

Police said the mother’s phone is currently off, but she sent out a text message last night saying:

“You guys know this year has been rough for me physically and emotionally. I love my kids and I kept trying. I have decided to let go and put an end to the misery.”

Romon is about 4 feet 5 inches tall, weighing about 60 pounds and has grayish/green eyes; and Jacqulin has brown hair, brown eyes and are missing her two front teeth.

Harrison was driving  her mother’s white 2011 Mazda 3 with Texas licence plate CGR-9347, investigators said.
