Mom caught with missing kids in W. Ashley told cops she was 'the victim'

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston Police Department says two missing children and their mother, who is accused of taking them, have been found safe at a home in West Ashley.

Authorities say a 7-year-old boy, a 9-year-old girl and the children's mother, Patricia Moon, were found at a home on Stinson Drive at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Appling County Sheriff's Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation were looking for Moon and the children who were last seen at a home on Olivia Drive in Charleston Tuesday evening.

As Moon was being arrested, a police report states she told officers "I'm the victim" and also said "no one is willing to help me".

Moon also admitted to knowing she was the subject of an AMBER alert, and when asked why she wouldn't answer their knock on the door, she told them "because there's the law, and there's what's right," the report states.

According to the sheriff's office, the children were turned over to their father Wednesday night.

Patricia Moon is expected to appear before a judge Thursday to face extradition to Georgia where she is facing kidnapping charges.
