Seven brothers and sisters who went missing Saturday from their home in Fresno, Calif., were found by an FBI task force on Thursday, nearly 200 miles away with their father in Sacramento.

The siblings, who were between 5 and 12, were unharmed and in good spirits, Fresno Police Sergeant Jaime Rios said.

At first, police were unable to reach the father, Xa Yang, who has been estranged from his family for the past three years, local newspaper The Fresno Bee reports.

Authorities didn't detain Yang on Thursday. However, both the Fresno and Sacramento police departments say they will be conducting an investigation to find out whether Yang committed a crime.

The children's mother said she asked her oldest son, who is 12, to babysit his brothers and sisters Saturday night while she went food shopping.

When she came back, her children were gone along with their clothes.

Authorities didn't believe the children were in any danger, after finding no signs of forced entry, so they did not issue an Amber Alert.
