CLEVELAND (AP) - Police in Cleveland have found a man who they say abducted his four children and then told his wife that he was going to kill the kids and himself.

Authorities said Wednesday that they found Octavia Hatchell and the children in Euclid, Ohio, about 12 miles northeast of Cleveland. The children were unharmed and Hatchell was taken into custody without incident.

Police had initially said he might have been headed to New York or Pennsylvania.

Officials say Hatchell picked up his children from two different schools in Cleveland after he and his wife got into argument and she called police. About two hours later, his wife told police that Hatchell called her and made the threats.

The kids are ages 11, 10, 9, and 6.
