Phoenix, AZ (January 29, 2020)-
The Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) is currently providing services to three children who have been safely removed and are in department custody.
DCS can confirm that we removed the first child from a home near 59th Avenue and Camelback on January 20, 2020 after Phoenix Police Department discovered her alone on a welfare check.
After removal of the first child, DCS learned of additional children that were not present in the home on January 20th, and our investigation continued.
DCS received court-authorization to remove the additional children and upon finding two children present in the home, removed them yesterday, January 28th.
DCS is continuing to jointly investigate this case in cooperation with Phoenix Police Department.
DCS will provide additional information if it becomes releasable under state law.
