Police in Texas say the father of two missing children has led investigators to the children's charred remains. Police found the remains of 7-year-old Randy Sylvester Junior and his 3-year-old sister Denim packed in a wooden chest and a suitcase and left in a wooded area in southeastern Houston. The bodies were found about 5 miles from the children's home in suburban Pasadena.

A Pasadena police spokesman says the children's father, Randy Sylvester Senior, led searchers to the remains late Friday after a week of misleading statements about where the kids were located. Sylvester remains jailed on an assault charge stemming from an alleged attack on the children's mother.

The discovery of the bodies ended a week of turbulent emotions for police, searchers and the children's family and friends.
