The East Tennessee Amber Alert that was issued on behalf of Van Buren County Sheriffs Office for two white females was canceled Wednesday night. Officials say the children were found safe in Maryland.

The females were three-year-old Summer Knasel and four-year-old Lovell Knasel. The children were abducted by their noncustodial parents, thirty-two-year-old Jeremy Knasel and twenty-four-year-old Ashley Norberg.

The children were removed from their custody on 2/17/2012 after it was discovered that Knasel and Norberg were manufacturing methamphetamine in the house with the children present and Knasel is known by law enforcement to act irrationally. They were believed to be armed with a handgun. The children were abducted at approximately midnight CST. They were believed to be driving a 1993 black Nissan Maxima.

Lexington police say cell phone activity appeared to indicate the couple was in the central Kentucky area.
