Two Big Spring children back in the families arms, after police say a transient kidnapped them.

46-year old Traci Lynn Wilson was arrested Sunday night.

Police say he convinced an 8 year old boy and 9 year old girl who were playing in a yard to go with him.

He claimed he was the girl's uncle.

Police say Wilson took them to an old motor home, but the boy became scared his mother would come looking for him, and ran out an open door.

The little girl tried to run, but Wilson stopped her.

The boy made it to a 7-11, and led police back to the motor home where Wilson was arrested.

He has been charged with kidnapping and aggravated kidnapping.

Police say he did not molest the girl, but believe he intended to.

No bond has been set.

Investigators say they would like to talk to the man who gave Wilson a ride, though they do not consider him a suspect.
