WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Police in Wichita say a report of a woman and her grandchildren living in a commercial storage unit was incorrect.

KAKE-TV reports that after talking to the children's father, police said Thursday the grandmother had taken them to the unit while she was doing some work there.

The incident began Wednesday morning when a driver reported seeing an unattended child outside the unit at Security Self-Storage in south Wichita.

Police went to the business and found the 38-year-old grandmother and three children, ages 1, 3 and 4. Based on the grandmother's statements, officers initially believed the group had been living in a storage unit and took the children into protective custody.

The children were returned to their father Thursday, and no charges will be filed.
