LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) -- Three young children who wandered five miles from their southwest Kansas farmhouse have been found safe after a frantic, 15-hour search.

The High Plains Daily Leader reports (http://bit.ly/16Qfxs8 ) authorities in Seward County were notified of the children's disappearance Tuesday evening. A citizen spotted them around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in Liberal and took them to a business. They were reported to be tired and hungry.

A family member had been looking after the children -- two girls, ages 3 and 5, and a 7-year-old boy -- at their rural Seward County home Tuesday while other relatives went to Liberal on errands.

Law enforcement officers and first responders from southwest Kansas and nearby Oklahoma searched for the children throughout the night, scouring fields on ATV's. Search dogs from Wichita and Hutchinson also took part.
