Minnesota Mother Arrested, Four of Five Missing Children Found
One Child is Still Missing
ROSE CREEK, Minn. (AP) – Authorities have arrested a Minnesota mother who was on the run and have located four of her five missing children.
Police say 39-year-old Izetta Cooley and the four children were found at a home in Moorhead Tuesday. Officials say Cooley was arrested on a felony kidnapping warrant from Mower County. She’s being held in the Clay County Jail.
One child, a 17-year-old boy, is still missing.
Authorities say Cooley was under court order not to have contact with her children, but she came to a home in Rose Creek and took some of them Saturday night.
Cooley’s husband, 44-year-old Miguel Cooley of Moorhead, is accused of fatally shooting 20-year-old Gabriel Perez outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Fargo, North Dakota, on Sept. 23. Miguel Cooley was later arrested in southeastern Minnesota.
