WEST PHILADELPHIA -- Police say the three brothers who went missing Friday from West Philadelphia have been found safe.

8-year-old Zair Bell, his brothers, 6-year-old Yashua Bell and 5-year-old Naziyr Bell were found safe at their grandmother's house on Saturday.

Officers responded around 4:15 p.m. to the 800 block of North 50th Street.

The boys' father told police, he last saw his three sons walking to the J. Rhoads Elementary School at 8:15 a.m.

When the boys did not return from school, he went to check on his sons.

A school official told him, his sons never arrived that day.

The father says he has an ongoing custody dispute with his ex-wife and believes she allegedly took them.
