For once, it isn’t actually Charlie Sheen that’s making the crazy headlines…

His ex-wife Brooke Mueller reportedly went missing with the pair’s two young children on Tuesday night.

Police released a statement late on Wednesday via the Utah Department of Public Safety’s website saying a woman claiming to be Mueller’s mother had called the police and informed them of this super bizarre situation.

It read: “On the morning of November 16, dispatchers with the Utah Department of Public Safety received a welfare check call from a woman claiming to be the mother of Brooke Mueller.

“Troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol responded to the welfare check call and located Mueller, her two children and a nanny on Interstate 15 near Nephi, Utah. The children are safe and will be released to family. Mueller was taken to an area hospital for evaluation.

The State Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating the incident.”

TMZ have reported that the police had been searching for the seven-year-old twins, called Bob and Max, after Mueller was spotted at a Salt Lake City bar with them while she was barefoot and looking “disheveled.”

Wow… This is terrifying.

Witnesses then claimed she had been with her children’s nanny but then got into an “altercation” with her.

At around 6am, Brooke, 39, was seen driving past a car wash with the children and witnesses said that after seeing her “swinging wildly at her kids” they pulled over to confront her.

She then began yelling at them, and one of the twins allegedly begged, “don’t call the cops, they are going to take my mommy away!”

Police then later confirmed that they had spoken with Brooke and that the children were now safe and taken to stay with a family member. Nobody was arrested or taken into custody and she has now been hospitalized for psychiatric treatment.

Charlie Sheen told TMZ: “I’m just trying to get my kids home safe. I have no other details that relate to the ongoing event.”

Brooke has battled drug addiction for years and has recently relocated from Los Angeles to Utah to attend a local rehab center where she has been receiving outpatient treatment.
