Christina Cienfuegos Jimenez and her two children were last seen Saturday afternoon at their East Central Fresno home.
Since being reported missing by her husband, the Fresno County Sheriff's Department spent much of Sunday looking for them.
Around 5:30 Sunday afternoon, deputies say the three were dropped off in the area of Kings Canyon and Chestnut. The investigation revealed they had been staying with someone the mother knew.
No charges will be filed.
