Greeley, CO asked in Child Custody for Colorado

Q: Is there anything I can do to get my kids from my ex once emergency custody has been granted?

Judge granted Temporary Emergency Custody of my children as they are unsafe with their mother. I was able to locate my ex and have her served, and it states she is to have no contact with them.. However I was unable to pick up my children as she has left that location with them. The neighbor said they packed up in a gold car and left. I was told they are staying at a local hotel. Is there anything I can do?
