Authorities locate three missing children; Mother wanted by authorities

Delray Beach, Florida – After an alarming absence spanning more than a month, three children were located safely today in Delray Beach, according to agents from the Department of Children and Families (DCF).

These children, 14-year-old Lashawd, 13-year-old Loveson, and 9-year-old Danylah Janvier, were found in the company of their biological father.

However, their mother, 34-year-old Demelia Gates, remains at large. She is currently sought in connection to the children’s disappearance and has a record of multiple previous arrests.

Prior to their safe discovery today, the children were last seen on May 11th in the company of Gates at the Roadway Inn on East Silver-Springs Boulevard. It was there that another child associated with the case was discovered, having been left behind. The whereabouts of Gates remain unknown as she continues to evade authorities.
