The parents had been ordered to stay away from the children and were only permitted to have supervised visitation in the presence of social workers.

The four children — 1-year-old twins, a 5-year-old and a 7-year-old — were found with their paternal grandmother on the U.S. side of the California-Mexico border at the San Ysidro Port of entry 10:15 a.m., according to officials with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The parents remain outstanding and may have crossed into Mexico, according to the state’s Emergency Digital Information Service.

An Amber Alert had been issued for the children.
