J I X / Splash News

After what sounds like a strange and potentially scary incident, this celebrity mom appears to be getting the help she needs. Charlie Sheen's ex-wife and mom to the couple's 7-year-old twins (Max and Bob), Brooke Mueller, has been hospitalized following reports that she and her sons were missing. 


Reportedly, Mueller, 39, was seen Tuesday night at a Salt Lake City bar barefoot, accompanied by her boys and the family nanny. After an altercation between the celebrity mom and the caregiver, police were called, but witnesses apparently told TMZ that Mueller fled with her kids and the nanny before they arrived.

The Utah Department of Public Safety issued the following statement:

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 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.

Mueller, the children, and the nanny were located Wednesday near Nephi, Utah, in their SUV. Thankfully, the boys are safe and were released to family, while Mueller was taken to the hospital for evaluation. 

When asked about the incident, Sheen, who revealed a year ago that he is HIV positive, told TMZ, "I'm just trying to get my kids home safe. I have no other details that relate to the ongoing event."

Those poor kids. This isn't the first time they've been placed in the care of others. When the boys were 3, they were removed from Mueller's home and placed with Denise Richards, Sheen's former wife and the mom of two of his daughters, Sam and Lola. 

A source told People that this latest incident stems from Mueller's going off her medications. Let's hope this mom gets the help she needs for both her children and herself, and we wish Mueller the best in finding a path for sustained good health.
