MESQUITE, Texas -- Two children who were the subject of an Amber Alert have been found safe.

The alert was issued when the mother of the children told police that her ex-boyfriend displayed a handgun and abducted their daughters.

Investigators say 40-year-old Gilberto Martinez entered a Mesquite home Monday to visit six-year-old Ameryca Yzabella Martinez and two-year-old Olevia Ashley Martinez.

Police say that early Tuesday morning, Martinez displayed a handgun and took the two girls. They say he threatened to harm the children and to commit suicide.

Mesquite police say the children were found safe and Martinez was taken into custody.
