RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A woman and her four children who were the focus of an Amber Alert earlier Tuesday have been found.

Racine police say 23-year-old Ariania Boutwell and her children had been missing since Monday.

Police haven't clarified if the children are back home tonight, or where Boutwell is, but we spoke with neighbors who say they were concerned about her disappearance.

Neighbors at the apartment complex where Boutwell -- listed as "suspect" -- on the initial Amber Alert, lives, said they didn't want to go on camera.

They were concerned when her 2016 red Chevy Sonic, with temporary Illinois plates, had been missing from the parking lot.

Boutwell's four children -- ages 7, 4, 2 and six months, also missing.

Neighbors say they hope whatever was going on gets sorted out and that the kids get to come home safely.

At this time, we're still waiting for word from police on exactly what happened.
