WATERTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Watertown Police have canceled a silver alert for a woman and her 3 children who was reported missing.
Police say 36-year-old Karen Dubrosky tried to get assistance from a "safe house."
Officials say she picked up her children from school yesterday and didn't go home.
That's when her 'common law' husband Martin Brown, called police. She and her children are in a safe "undisclosed location."
"She has made contact with a person or persons known to her as what I can only describe as a self-help group. Letting her know that she was
with the children. She was looking to go somewhere else, other than to stay at the house in Watertown," said Deputy Chief Robert Desena, Watertown Police.
Dubrosky was in court last year on a child endangerment charge.
Her husband reported that she'd written on the children with a marker.
The state did not pursue the charge but it can still re-open the case.
