Police discovered that Macke left the US a day earlier and wasn't set to return until October 1, the Register reported.

The kids were alone for only one day, but police say Macke was planning on leaving her children alone for 10 days.

She returned to the United States and police charged her with four counts of child endangerment and another for making a firearm available for someone under the age of 21, according to the Register.

The ex-husband of a woman who police said abandoned her children as she jetted off to Europe for a vacation said her departure was "an intentional premeditated act".
