A woman and her children were found safe Monday morning after Ormond Beach police issued a missing children alert overnight.

Police called the incident a misunderstanding after talking to Jennifer Peabody, who arrived home with her two daughters.

According to family members, Peabody suffers from depression and said during an earlier phone call with a relative in New Jersey that she was planning on killing herself and her 7- and 9-year-old daughters.
