JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

9:55 p.m., Nov. 15 UPDATE: Osceola Police Chief David Gladden said Tuesday that the two six-year-old twins reportedly taken by Aaron Young of Osceola to Sacramento are now back in the state of Arkansas. 

Gladden said authorities are still awaiting the extradition of Young, 24, from California to Arkansas. Authorities there arrested Young on suspicion of kidnapping in the taking of both children. 


The two 6-year-old twins that authorities had searched for since Oct. 27 were found safe Tuesday night in Sacramento, CA, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department. 

Deputies also arrested Aaron Young, 24, of Osceola around 7 p.m., at a home in Creeks Edge Way in South Sacramento. 

Officials said Young, who faces a kidnapping charge, will be booked into the Sacramento County Jail, where he will be held without bail until he awaits his extradition hearing back to Arkansas.
