Child welfare officials have taken two children into custody after finding them living on their own in an abandoned bus northeast of Houston.

Montgomery County Constable Rowdy Hayden said the children's parents are in prison for embezzling money from Hurricane Ike victims in 2008. He says the children -- ages 11 and 5 -- have been living on their own, alone in the bus for at least 12 hours a day but checked on each night by a great-aunt. He says a neighbor also told investigators that she'd bring food to them occasionally.

Hayden says there was electricity in the bus and an air conditioner, but the children were dirty. No charges have been filed. Child Protective Services is investigating.

Splendora is 35 miles northeast of Houston.
