Snohomish County Sheriff's Office was searching for a missing woman, 36-year-old Melissa Raffensperger, her 3-year-old daughter and 1-year-old family member.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Melissa and the two girls were found just before 9:45 p.m. and all were doing well.
Melissa was watching both children Monday and often takes them out but was expected to be back by 4 p.m., according to the Sheriff's Office.
A family member told KOMO News both young girls have curly hair, and the younger one was wearing pink leggings, a grey sweater, a green jacket and pink tennis shoes.
Melissa may have been taking the girls somewhere to have a fire; the family member says she brought fire wood and chairs for all three of them.
Investigators say she was driving a tan Chevy Tahoe, Washington license plate BFY0846.
She is thought to have traveled to Mountain Loop Highway and that is currently where searchers are looking.
