The Hogan family, comprised of mother Carolyn, and her three children, missing since Monday evening, have just been located in a Santa Monica parking lot. The four had traveled to LA from Georgia, however authorities learned after they left the Union Rescue Mission in DTLA that a protective order had been issued for the kids by a Georgia court, on fears Carolyn could not care for her kids. LA County Sheriff's deputies assisted the kids out of the family van; Carolyn Hogan was held in handcuffs, as shown by ABC7 during their broadcast.
