Mueller, who was married to the Two and a Half Men star from 2008 to 2011, was spotted in Salt Lake City with seven-year-old Max and Bob following an alleged altercation with a nanny - after the boys were reported missing.

According to TMZ, the 39-year-old was barefoot and looked dishevelled. Mueller fled the scene before police officers arrived and reportedly attempted to book rooms at several area hotels.

Sheen was informed of the drama as it unfolded by cops and told TMZ, "I'm just trying to get my kids home safe. I have no other details that relate to the ongoing event."

On Friday (18Nov16), Sheen revealed he had spoken with someone close to Mueller, and told TMZ, "The (kids) are excellent, everyone is good, it could have been a lot worse. I talked to somebody right next to her."

Mueller was also reportedly spotted swinging at the children and was confronted at a Utah car wash. Police eventually tracked the former realtor, her kids and their nanny to Nephi, Utah - 83 miles from Salt Lake City - and Mueller was taken to a nearby hospital for an evaluation.

The kids were left with their nanny.

Sheen did not disclose details about Brooke's reported hospitalisation, or who is currently looking after his sons.

Mueller moved away from Hollywood with Max and Bob shortly after Sheen revealed he was HIV-positive in a TV interview last year (15), and she has been raising them in Park City, Utah.
