MOORHEAD, MN — Authorities have arrested a Minnesota mother who was on the run and have located four of her five missing children.

Police say 39-year-old Izetta Cooley and the four children were found at a home in Moorhead Tuesday.

Officials say Cooley was arrested on a felony kidnapping warrant from Mower County.

She’s being held in the Clay County Jail.

One child, a 17-year-old boy, is still missing.

Authorities say Cooley was under court order not to have contact with her children, but she came to a home in Rose Creek and took some of them Saturday night.

Cooley’s husband, 44-year-old Miguel Cooley of Moorhead, is accused of fatally shooting 20-year-old Gabriel Perez outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Fargo, North Dakota, on Sept. 23.

Miguel Cooley was later arrested in southeastern Minnesota.
