ORMOND BEACH, Fla. -

A woman and her children were found safe Monday morning after Ormond Beach police issued a Missing Children Alert earlier.

According to family members, Peabody suffers from depression and said during an earlier phone call with a relative in New Jersey that she was planning on killing herself and her daughters.
