Four young brothers who went missing nearly two weeks ago in Alabama were found almost 400 miles away in Western North Carolina.

The boys, who range in age from one to 11, were taken from their grandmother's home south of Huntsville on Dec. 8. Their parents, who do not have custody of the children, turned themselves in to Morganton police Monday night.

Authorities said the boys were staying at a home in Burke County.

Marcus Simmons, 39, the father of all four boys, and Karissa Cummings, 29, the mother of three of the four boys, are being held on $200,000 bond each. They are scheduled to have an extradition hearing Wednesday.
