The NYPD said that a mother who disappeared from her Brooklyn home, along with her three young children, has been found safe.

Crystal Johnson was reported missing on Friday, after being seen with her children at their home on Van Siclen Avenue in East New York, police said. Her children — two sons Devine, 6, and Sincere, 5, and their 1-year-old sister Hydi — were with their mother, according to police.

The 26-year-old Johnson was seen just after noon wearing a navy blue sweater while with the children and pushing a stroller, police said.

The Administration for Children's Services (ACS) was scheduled to pay Johnson a visit Friday, but she left with the kids before that time.

Before 11 p.m., police said that Johnson and the children were found at a Hampton Inn on Route 46 in Ridgefield, New Jersey. ACS was en route to talk with the children, and Johnson was being taken to an area hospital for evaluation.
