Police: 3 kids were never in Nashville, never missing

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A report that three children were missing Wednesday morning from a south Nashville motel has turned out to be false.

In a phone call to Nashville's News 2 around Noon, Metro police spokesperson Don Aaron said it turns out the children, reported missing around 8 a.m. were never unaccounted for and were never even in Nashville.

Initially, a police department spokesperson said a man and woman traveled to Nashville from Memphis on Tuesday to bail the children's mother out of jail.

They did so and the trio, along with the children, booked a room at the Travel Lodge located at 95 Wallace Road off Harding Place.

At some point overnight, the man who traveled from Memphis left with the children and was on his way back to Memphis to give the children to their father, according to the initial reports.

Police found none of that to be true.

Aaron said it was not immediately clear if charges would be filed or who would face them.

The mother was in jail Tuesday for failing to appear in court, police said.
