An Amber Alert that was issued Monday for 3-year-old boy kidnapped by the ex-girlfriend of the child’s mother was canceled after the child was found safe.
Police said 3-year-old Clayber Laros-Reyes was taken by 26-year-old Ingrid Urbina-Centeno about 12:15 p.m. in southwest Houston.
Authorities said Urbina-Centeno told the child’s mother, “I’m going to kill your son, so it hurts you the way it hurt me when you left me,” before taking the boy and fleeing.
The mother left in pursuit of the suspect and her son and police said no one had heard from her.
About 8:30 p.m., Houston police said in a tweet that both the child and his mother were found safe.
Urbina-Centeno was detained and charged with aggravated kidnapping.
Authorities haven’t yet said how Garcia-Reyes and her son were found.
UPDATE: Thankfully, child and mom have been recovered safely. Suspect is in custody and faces an aggravated kidnapping charge. No other information available at this time. #hounews https://t.co/IQYmAQyLqE
