Posted: Updated:

The last of the five children reported missing after allegedly being taken by their mother is now in protective custody.
The Moorhead Police Department says 17-year-old Morgan Cooley turned himself in yesterday afternoon and is currently in protective custody of the clay County Social Services Department.
Authorities arrested his 39-year-old mother, who is the wife of a murder suspect, Tuesday. Police say she was on the run with all five children.
According to authorities Cooley was under court order not to have contact with her children, but she came to a home in Rose Creek and took some of them last Saturday night.
Cooley's husband, 44-year-old Miguel Cooley of Moorhead, is accused of fatally shooting 20-year-old Gabriel Perez outside a McDonald's restaurant in Fargo, North Dakota, on Sept. 23.
Miguel Cooley was later arrested in southeastern Minnesota.
