UPDATE: RCMP say boy safe after Amber Alert issued in west-central Alberta

Waylon Armstrong was believed to be abducted at around 2:30 a.m. in the hamlet of Brule.

Alberta RCMP say a toddler has been found unharmed and his father is in custody, after an Amber Alert was issued early Friday.

The alert went out about 2:30 a.m. for the 14-month-old boy.

Mounties say he was taken from his father’s home in the hamlet of Brule, about 315 kilometres west of Edmonton.

RCMP said the 41-year-old father had a rifle with him when he left his house with the boy.

On Friday afternoon, RCMP said the home had been cleared but the vehicle was found back at the same location.

They later said the man had surrendered to officers.
