MESA, Ariz. -- Authorities say two Chandler brothers reported missing from a group home in Mesa have been located and now are in the custody of state Child Protective Services.

Mesa police say 10-year-old Jairo Perez and 14-year-old Miguel Miranda were found Thursday afternoon.

Authorities say the boys' mother had been arrested by Chandler police Saturday night on suspicion of trespassing and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

She's identified as 36-year-old Jessica Montano.

The brothers were placed in the home by CPS and police say the two boys ran away Sunday morning after going to play basketball.

Police didn't immediately know if Montano has an attorney yet.
