Two kids who were reported missing from Duluth on Thursday afternoon were found safe Thursday night, according to Duluth police.

A Levi's Call was originally issued Thursday afternoon for the two kids who were abducted in Duluth after police say their father hit a Department of Family and Children Services worker who was trying to take custody of the kids.

The worker was in her car at the time and was not injured.

Investigators said John Blue drove his children to their grandmother's home in Greenville, SC, and dropped them off. Blue then drove to the Norcross Police Department and turned himself in. Lt. Pete Bava told CBS46's Mike Paluska that the children are safe and in the custody of the state. 

"They would be the equivalent of Georgia's Department of Family and Children Services," Bava said. 

The children, 10 and 14, were not injured.

As Blue was taken into custody, he said the state worker tried to ram his vehicle, not the other way around. He also said his children were safe.
