I would think that there is a non-zero probability that she might attempt to kidnap the children and spirit them out of the country somehow.

Non-zero is not an appropriate test. 0.0000001% is non-zero. There is no reasonable chance that she would do so. She has neither the means to do so, financially or in terms of access to the kids, nor the demeanor to do so. How would she get on a plane undetected with seven layers of black robes hiding her whole body and face?

If you wanted to make excuses for holding her, I imagine that claiming she would obstruct the investigation by hiding evidence or influencing witnesses would be a better excuse. But the fact is, there is no legal justification for holding her.
