Port Townsend police are looking for Caden Yackulic, 8, and Kohl Yackulic, 4, who are missing and endangered. According to police, their mother, Mary Hos, right, is a suspect.


— UPDATE: Police found the mother and children Saturday afternoon in Mason County. The police say the children are safe and the mother was taken into custody.


Port Townsend police say two young boys have been missing for more than three weeks and could be in danger after their 41-year-old mother, Mary Hos, allegedly fled the area with them.

The children’s father last reported seeing the children, aged four and eight, in Port Townsend on April 17. Kohl Yackulic, 4, has blue eyes and blond hair. He is 3 feet tall and weighs about 40 pounds. His 8-year-old brother, Caden Yackulick, has blond hair and brown eyes, is 3 foot 6 inches tall and weighs about 90 pounds.

Port Townsend police say Hos drives a maroon 1988 Honda Accord four-door sedan with a Washington state license plate, 843-XWL. Police say Hos is wanted on multiple felony warrants for her use and possession of methamphetamine.

Officers talked with family members Saturday, who said the boys are with Hos, but did not know where they were. The 45-year-old father said Hohs is taking steps to avoid being found.

Anyone who sees people or the vehicle fitting this description should call 911. Those with information on Hos’ whereabouts are asked to call the Port Townsend Police Department, 360-385-3831, extension 1.
