Brooke Mueller Hospitalized for Evaluation After She and Her Sons Went Missing

Updated

Brooke Mueller has been hospitalized after she and her twin sons were reported missing, the Utah Department of Public Safety announced Wednesday.

On Tuesday night, Mueller, 39, walked into a Salt Lake City bar barefoot, with her kids — Bob and Max, 7 — and the family nanny, TMZ reported. While in the bar, Mueller and the nanny got into an altercation, causing someone to call the police.

Early Wednesday morning, the Salt Lake City Police Department attempted to locate Mueller before a source told PEOPLE that “the boys are fine and with their nanny” after “Brooke went off of her medications.”

“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. 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 statement reads. “The children are safe and will be released to family. Mueller was taken to an area hospital for evaluation. The State Bureau of Investigation is currently investigating the incident. We do not have any more information to release at this time.”

A source told PEOPLE that the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, who wed the actor in 2008 and filed separate divorce petitions in 2010, seemed content and was “casually dating” skin care creator Peter Thomas Roth just before the incident on Tuesday night.

In response to the situation, Sheen told TMZ, “I’m just trying to get my kids home safe. I have no other details that relate to the ongoing event.”

Earlier this year, a source told PEOPLE that Mueller had checked herself into rehab, and it was not the first time that Mueller had sought help — in December 2011, she entered herself into a “long-term, in-patient treatment center” following an arrest for alleged cocaine possession and assault.

Though Sheen, 51, issued a brief comment on Tuesday’s incident (he is “just trying to get [his] kids home safe”), Mueller has yet to address the reports as of publication time.
