U.S. and Mexican law enforcement agencies have recovered two young children taken by non-custodial parents.

The U.S. State Department is caring for 1-year-old Estella Lovemore and 2-year-old Carolina Oddo in Mexico pending their return to the United States, the Marshals Service say.

The girls were located Thursday in Hermosillo, Sonora, where authorities took into custody 22-year-old Danielle Nicole Lovemore, the mother of the 1-year-old, according to the Marshals Service.

Lovemore has been returned to the United Sates to face a charge of custodial interference.

Her daughter was in Arizona Child Protective Services custody in January.

The other girl’s biological father is 26-year-old Luis Fernando Palacio.

He’s wanted on a custodial interference warrant accusing him of taking the girl in November.  He was supposed to return the girl to her mother.
