Two small children are safe after being found on the side of the road, and now their parents are facing charges.

Brandy Alsdorf and James Roark are charged with child abuse and neglect, drug possession, and unlawful drug paraphernalia.

Bluff City Police tell us someone found the 2-year-old children along Bluff City Highway on Tuesday morning.

Officers say they found out where the toddlers lived and spotted a man asleep in the home with drug paraphernalia in view.

Police say Alsdorf and Roark were not home at the time.

The Department of Children's Services took the children from the home.
