I wish to inform you that normally CPS may not keep a case open beyond two years.

Once children are moved out of state, they are no longer under the jurisdiction of the state nor any of its agencies [save the court which retains jurisdiction until the child is of legal age -- and it is notified there is legal action pending in another state].

They should be notified that the children are no longer in the subject state.

Even if the subjects move, Childrens Services will attempt to locate them and transfer the case. It will be up to the investigating office when they close the case. Parents etc.. could potentially be subject to criminal prosecution for interfering in an official investigation.
