NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police say two children have been found safe after they were reported missing Wednesday in east Nashville.

The children, 5-year-old Staniya Crowder and 7-year-old Thomas Colliers, had last been seen near the 900 block of West Eastland Avenue just before 1 p.m.

Police say the children were playing outside their home while their mother was inside asleep. A short time later, the children's uncle returned to the home and didn't see them, police said.

More than a dozen officers went door-to-door to look for the children, and Metro police deployed a helicopter to search from above.

Police say the children were found with another family member. No other details have been provided.
