PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Law enforcement officials in Washington canceled an Amber Alert Sunday night for a 3-year-old boy after he was found with his mother.

The Snoqualmie Police Department confirmed the child was found healthy and the mother was taken into custody around 10 p.m. on Sunday.

According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, the boy was kidnapped from his father’s home Sunday afternoon. They said the boy’s mother, who is prohibited from contacting her child per a court order, was the person who took him. 

When the Amber Alert was first issued, investigators said the boy and his mother, Morgan Cooper-Mcwade, were possibly with a man named Edward Carte — who has reportedly made threats to kill Cooper-Mcwade and her children.

Further details surrounding the boy being found are not yet available.
