The search continues for two missing Montgomery County children as their mother is expected to appear in court.

Twenty-seven-year-old Catherine Hoggle of Clarksburg is set for a bond hearing Monday on charges of child neglect, obstruction and hindering.

She was arrested Friday after being missing for five days.

Her children, 3-year-old Sarah and 2-year-old Jacob, have been missing since last Monday.

Police say Hoggle tells them the children are safe but won’t say where they are. Authorities say Hoggle has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.

Over the weekend, police searched the Darnestown and Clarksburg areas for the children, finding nothing.

Police plan to discuss the case at a news conference Monday.

Police say Hoggle slipped away from her common-law husband last Monday after she wasn’t forthcoming about the children’s whereabouts.
