From the King County Sheriff's Office

A two year old was reunited with his mother at 8:23pm after Shoreline police located the child with his father. The Skagit County Sheriff’s Office issued an Amber Alert for the two year old after the boy’s father took him after a court hearing.  

Skagit County deputies believe that the father broke into his brother-in-law’s house to take the child. The father allegedly made text message threats to the child and the child’s mother. Skagit County deputies also believed that the man was armed or had immediate access to firearms.

Shoreline police received tips from the Amber Alert about the father’s whereabouts and this was confirmed by Skagit County investigators. Plain clothes detectives drove by the house and located the car described in the alert. When they turned around down the block and drove back by the house, they saw the father and two other men with the child. The detectives took the child and Shoreline police officers arrested the father.  

Skagit County Sheriff’s detectives will complete the investigation. The father of the child was arrested and was booked into the Skagit County Jail for felony investigation charges.  

This is an instance in which the system worked just as it should. Skagit County issued the Amber Alert for an endangered child, and the child was recovered safely by Shoreline officers in minutes.
