    By: Alison Grande


    The children and mother that were the subject of an Amber Alert Thursday evening were found safe in Oregon, police said.

    The mother and her two young children were found in an Albertsons parking lot in Eugene, Ore.   The mother called a relative said she was ok, and police traced her phone call.

    Mill Creek Police received a referral from the Department of Social and Health Services that the mother, Sajza Henry, 25, left with her two children, 2-year-old Tyrel, and Alexandria Henry, who is 8-months-old.

    Police said Sajza Henry was driving a burgundy 1997 Land Rover with license plate 708VZU.

    The children will be checked out at a hospital in Eugene.  It will be up to DSHS and Child Protective Services to decide what happens next. 

    "There is serious concern for the health and welfare of Sajza, Tyrel and Alexandria,” Mill Creek Commander Ken Neaville said when issuing the Amber Alert. “Sajza has been diagnosed with several untreated mental health conditions and is not allowed to be the sole caretaker of the children. Sajza has been receiving constant help in caring for the children from a family member prior to leaving this morning.

    “Tyrel also has a medical condition that requires 24-hour nursing care, which has been … provided by the family member, a trained nurse.”

    Tyrel is on a ventilator. Family members worried Henry wouldn’t know what to do when the battery ran out.
