That's when, police said, their mother's 38-year-old boyfriend - Craig Beaudoin - kidnapped them and took them to where he lives in Lewiston, Maine with their mom - 35-year-old Chereese Ford.

Police said that Ford does not have custody of them and hasn’t seen them in years.

“It doesn’t appear they were harmed in any way, but it does appear they were forcibly taken,” Michael Botieri, of the Plymouth Police Department, said. “It was scary. I’m sure it was scary for them and it quickly became very scary for us as well.”

Ford and Beaudoin have each been charged with 2 counts of Kidnapping, 2 counts of Assault and Battery on a Child, and Conspiracy to Kidnap.

They're currently being held in Lewiston, and will be arraigned on charges there.
