CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Police have found two missing girls on Arrowhead Ave. in Cleveland.

The mother has been arrested, and officers have contacted Children and Family Services.

Earlier, Cleveland and Fairview Park Police were seeking the public’s help in finding two missing sisters, who were in danger.

Tamani McCalla, 2, and Talisha McCalla, 4, had been unlawfully taken by their mother.

According to police, Caryann Sewell was ordered by the court to turn them over to the Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services and has since taken them, and not complied with the order.

Fairview Park Police caught up with Sewell near West 208th Street on Wednesday, after a witness reported her daughters were by themselves in a car for a long period of time.

Sewell gave the police a fake ID, then fled the scene after a fingerprint scanner revealed her real identity.

Sewell backed into a police cruiser, and drove over several curbs and yards to evade police.

Officers gave chase, but ended the pursuit due to the danger Sewell posed to her daughters and the public.

Sewell is 23 years old, 5-feet-7-inches tall, weighs 170 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.

She has numerous warrants for her arrest in connection with nonviolent crimes.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 216-621-1234.

Or, call Fairview Park Police at 440-333-1234.
