Two Canadian kids missing for nearly 4 years were found living with their father in Mexico last week, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. On a tip, Interpol agents raided a house in Guadalajara and found Abby and Dominic Maryk, 8 and 10 respectively, living with father Kevin Maryk. The agents also found weapons, child pornography, and drugs in Maryk's home during the raid. Maryk and two other men have been detained.

The other men were Maryk's associate, Robert Groen, and Maryk's nephew, Cody McKay, according to a Mexican newspaper. Canadian authorities had issued warrants for Maryk and two other men in the abduction back in 2008, when the children failed to return home to their mother after a holiday with Maryk. Now Winnipeg police say a "significant development" has broken in the case since Friday, but no comment will be issued until tomorrow. (More child abduction stories.)
