HEMET — Two young children, a 23-month-old and a 7-month old, who were abducted by their biological parents from their grandparents’ home in Hemet were later located in Tustin and are back with their grandparents this morning, and four people are in custody, authorities said.

Tustin police located the vehicle the infant and toddler’s parents were believed to be driving about 11 p.m. Monday on the 14000 block of Newport Avenue and contacted sheriff’s investigators, according to a statement from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Four suspects were arrested, and the children were returned unharmed to their grandparents, the statement said.

Deputies said the parents, Samiuela Stevens and Megan Sweesy, along with Stevens’ twin brother, Hamani, took the children from the grandparents about 11:45 a.m. Friday, the sheriff’s department said. The fourth person under arrest was not identified by authorities.

The grandparents told NBC4 they were given custody of the children because of the parents’ alleged mental health issues and drug use.
