Irwin police working to confirm reports that missing children, mother found
Irwin police were working Tuesday morning to confirm that a woman they claim took two children from the borough Monday had been found in South Carolina.
Champale A. Humphrey-Boglow, 22, of Aurora, Colo., took the two girls, ages 2 years and 4 months, from a Pennsylvania Avenue house Monday afternoon, Irwin Officer Bill Sombo said Monday.
Police said she is the mother of the children but does not have legal custody of them.
An officer said Tuesday morning that once authorities confirm the woman is Humphrey-Boglow, they will alert the media.
Humphrey-Boglow was last seen driving a white 2014 Chevrolet Equinox with a Colorado license plate number VQM-776. The plate is on the rear of the sport utility vehicle and there is only one plate on it.
Police said Humphrey-Boglow is 5-feet 4-inches tall and about 189 pounds. She has brown eyes and black long hair that she usually wears in a bun.
Police are looking for her as an endangered person and the two children as endangered children.
Anyone who sees the vehicle or the woman is asked to call Westmoreland County 911, Irwin police at 724-864-3103 or any state police station.
