Mill Creek police say a mother who fled with her two children, sparking an Amber Alert, has been found in Oregon.

Police say 25-year-old Sajza Henry and her two children were located at an Albertson's parking lot in Eugene.

Henry packed up her belongings and drove off with her two-year-old and eight-month-old children Thursday morning. Sajza has been diagnosed with several untreated mental health conditions and is not allowed to be the sole caretaker of the children, police say.

"Everybody appears to be okay," says Officer Ian Henry. "They all appear to be in good condition and good health and they will be seen by medical personnel to make sure there are no other issues."

Two-year-old Tyrel Henry has a medical condition that requires 24-hour nursing care, which had been provided by a family member who is a trained nurse.

Sajza was believed to be driving a burgundy colored 1997 Land Rover with Washington license plate 708 VZU. She was thought to be heading to a male friend's home, but police didn't know the location.
