ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Two missing boys have been found and their mother arrested after an AMBER Alert was issued Sunday. 

Englewood Police received an anonymous tip and located the boys, 8 year old Jonny and 12 year old Joseph Dinapoli with their mother, Rebecca Dinapoli. 

The three were found safe, and the mother was taken into custody, charged with kidnapping and other charges. 

The search began when officers responded to the area of West Chenango Avenue and South Galapago Street at around 5:41 a.m. on reports of a parental kidnapping. 

And AMBER Alert was issued, and descriptions of the boys, their mom, and her vehicle were sent out. That alert prompted the tip that helped police find the three later Sunday night, according to police.
