The four boys, which range from 1 to 11 years old, were being brought back to Alabama by the Blount County, North Carolina Department of Human Resources as of Tuesday morning.

The couple will be charged with interference with child custody, which is a felony charge.

Arab police drove to North Carolina to extradite the couple back to Marshall County Wednesday. Before they turned themselves in, police said they had run out of leads in their search for the six.
