ST. MARTIN PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

St. Martin Parish officials say the missing mother and two small children appeared to be in good condition despite the ordeal.

Officials say 25-year-old Heather Gary, 4-year old Landon Sonnier and 4-year-old Taylin Toucheck were located at about 7:30 Monday evening, about one miles from where they were last seen. They were transported to a local hospital to get checked out.

The group had been missing since Sunday afternoon. They were last seen walking east on Joel Blanchard Road. Joel Blanchard Road is southeast of Breaux Bridge, LA.

Heather Gary is Landon's mother and Taylin Toucheck is the daughter of her boyfriend. Taylin's mother first confirmed the news.

A extensive search had been underway for the three in the wooded area. Officials used helicopters and ATV's. The group was found by two volunteers.

The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office say the three began walking after their ATV became stuck in the mud.
