Both children found safe within 24 hours

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado Springs police are searching for a man accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend's children.

The mother called police Sunday afternoon to report that Michael Bobian was refusing to return her two children after they spent the night at his house.

The mother told police Bobian was supposed to drop the children off at her house at approximately 3 p.m., but he called her shortly before that and told her he would not return her children, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department.

She called police and they tried to contact Bobian, with no success.

The Violent Crimes Homicide Unit responded to investigate the kidnapping.

Police found the children unharmed at about 5 a.m. Monday.

Bobian's current girlfriend, Juanita Gonzales, was taken into custody for accessory to kidnapping, but police have been unable to find Bobian.

He is wanted on an unrelated warrant for narcotics violations.

Bobian is described as Hispanic, 39 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, with black hair, brown eyes and possibly a black beard. He also has a scar on his chin.

It is not known whether Bobian has access to a vehicle.
