APPLETON, Wis. - Fox Valley leaders told the federal government they're unable to find shelter for unaccompanied minors who crossed into the United States at the Mexican border.

Post-Crescent Media reports that federal officials hoped to identify possible locations in northeastern Wisconsin to house up to 400 children from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

The U.S. Health and Human Services has been searching throughout the country for large facilities that are within 100 miles of an airport.

Officials in Outagamie County told the department they were concerned about funding and education for the children if they were relocated to the Fox Valley. Department officials said the shelter would be funded by the federal government.

Health and Human Services is continuing to search for sites in Wisconsin.
