SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) -- Three young Michigan girls have been found safe, a day after their mother was found slain in the family's home.Saginaw police had suspected the sisters were abducted by their father, who they described as "potentially dangerous." A nationwide Amber Alert had been issued for the girls, ages 3, 5 and 9.Authorities say a tip from a motorist who heard the alert led Michigan state police to a car the girls and their father were in. A day after being spotted in Indiana, the father and daughters were found today back in Michigan, about 25 miles from Saginaw.Police found the body of the girls' 32-year-old mother yesterday after she failed to pick up another child at school. Authorities say they haven't determined the cause of death but that it's considered to be a homicide.The father is in custody. He hasn't been charged with a crime, but can be held for at least two days without charges being filed.
