Charlie Sheen's 7-year-old twins, Max and Bob, are safe, ET has learned.
Following a report that the 51-year-old actor's ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, was on the run with their sons after reportedly stumbling into a bar with them on Tuesday night, the Salt Lake City Police confirmed to ET that Mueller and the kids have been found.
Police officials said there was no information about an incident taking place at a tavern or a bar, however. "This was basically a welfare check that got blown way out of proportion," they revealed.
"About 6:30 this morning, officers were sent on a disturbance at a different location of our city. When the officers arrived, there was nobody there for them to talk to," Salt Lake City police officials explained to ET. "The information that we have was there was some kind of disturbance in that area."
In a statement to ET, Utah Highway Patrol added that "Mueller was taken to an area hospital for evaluation."
"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," officials said in the statement. "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. The State Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating the incident. We do not have any more information to release at this time."
ET caught up with Mueller's sister, Sydney Wolofsky, on Wednesday, who also confirmed the news.
"I spoke to Brooke today, she is at home with boys all safe," she said. "The information coming out is skewed, the stories are misinformed. She is all good, she is taking her medication as she should. She is sober, she is all good."
"I last spoke to Brooke before the story broke and she was fine," Wolofsky added. "I called my parents after another reporter called me and asked what was going on and they said nothing is going on. We are brushing it off as wires getting crossed. Brooke's move to Utah was to be closer to outpatient treatment and also for the boys' school. She is always being monitored."
According to TMZ, Mueller allegedly walked into a bar, barefoot, with Max and Bob by her side, trying to bum a cigarette. Witnesses at the bar told the outlet that their nanny was also there, but got into an altercation with Mueller, which prompted someone to call the police. Mueller allegedly left before police arrived.
"I'm just trying to get my kids home safe," Sheen told TMZ on Tuesday. "I have no other details that relate to the ongoing event."
ET has reached out to Sheen and Mueller's mother for comment.
Back in February, ET reported that the former Two and a Half Men star was paying Mueller and another ex-wife, Denise Richards, $55,000 a month each. During an appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, Sheen referred to the plan as "Operation Harmony," explaining that his generosity was intended to bring his kids and exes together.
"I bought houses in my neighborhood for Brooke and the boys, and then for Denise and the girls," he said. "I wanted everybody to be in the same neighborhood. And that all went bad."
