Mom of missing Md. kids transferred out of Mont. Co.

GERMANTOWN, Md. (WUSA9) -- The mother of two missing Maryland children has been transferred to a facility in Howard County.

Catherine Hoggle, who has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, was transferred to a Jessup facility as part of her psychological evaluation, her attorney confirmed.

Montgomery County police continue to search the Germantown area for missing three-year-old Sarah and two-year-old Jacob Hoggle. Monday, police asked businesses to check their Sept. 7 and Sept. 8 surveillance videos for Catherine Hoggle's vehicles.

Sarah and Jacob Hoggle have been missing for more than two weeks. Catherine Hoggle has been questioned by police and she claims the children are safe, but police have been unable to locate the children to verify her story.

Troy Turner, the children's father, told WUSA9 that he wanted police to issue an Amber Alert. Police said an Amber Alert requires a vehicle and plate number, which they already recovered for Catherine Hoggle, and therefore the alert was not issued.
