Mother Wanted For Taking Her Children During Custody Battle Arrested

UPDATED: Saturday June 22, 2013 3:10 PM

The search for a woman who took her two children after a custody hearing ended on Saturday.

According to the Richland County Sheriff’s Office, Danielle M. Ralph was located and arrested early Saturday.

Ralph took her children, 3-year-old Amber, and 2-year-old Gabriel, after a ruling on Thursday that granted custody to her ex-husband, officials said.

After the ruling, Ralph stated that she would not give her children to anyone, according to officials.

An Amber Alert was not issued because the criteria for the alert was not met.

On Saturday, Ralph was charged with interference with custody and contempt of court.

The children were returned to their legal guardian, their father.
