Two families who were frantically searching for their missing children, received a call from police who found the children in a Walmart.

Police in Texas, were called to Walmart on reports that a woman lured children away from their homes with the promise to buy them sweets.

The discovery was made after 23-year-old Castle Kameron Gately, was initially detained by loss prevention officers when she was seen shoplifting at WalMart at 6185 Retail Road in Dallas.

Loss prevention workers questioned the children, who are 5 and 6-years-old, and it quickly became apparent that they were not related to Gately.

The boys said they had followed her to Walmart because she promised to buy them “whatever they wanted,” according to a police report.

The two friends said that they had been playing outside their apartment complex when Gately approached them and told them she would buy them candy if they came with her.

When police searched Gately, they found a bag containing meth hidden in her bra.

The two children were safely returned to their mothers, who had already called 911 to report that they had disappeared.

Gately was charged with unlawful restraint of a minor, possession of a controlled substance and property theft. Bail was set at $150,000.
