Authorities searched an adoption home run by an American man and his Guatemalan wife and rescued 46 children they believe may have been stolen or coerced from their parents, police said Sunday. Guatemalan National Police spokesman Carlos Calju said the children, ranging in age from a few days to 3 years old, were found Saturday at the Casa Quivira children's home in Antigua, a colonial city popular among foreign tourists near Guatemala City. Calju said Casa Quivira is run by Clifford Phillips of Deland, Florida, and his Guatemalan wife and attorney, Sandra Gonzalez. The couple could not be reached for comment Sunday, and calls to the Casa Quivira Children's Fund in Deland went unanswered. No one responded to an e-mail sent to the children's home in Antigua seeking comment. "We searched the house after we got a tip from neighbors telling us that every day they would see foreigners pick up children there," Calju said.
