Just after 8 a.m. Monday, Northglenn police said the Amber Alert had been canceled for a missing toddler after the boy was located safely in Aurora. The boy's father, Alejandro Taylor, 32, was also taken into custody, according to a Tweet from the Aurora police department.
In a release, Monday morning, Northglenn police said they responded to 12200 Block of Claude Court around 11:40 p.m. Sunday night. A woman there told officers her 18-month-old son was with his father who had called her and threatened to harm the child. The woman told police the father owns multiple firearms.
An Endangered Missing Persons Alert was issued for the boy around 3 a.m., around 7:30 a.m. that was upgraded to an Amber Alert.
Police said the two were traveling in a 2014 purple Chevrolet Spark with Colorado license plate 126-YIX. The car has a Green Bay Packers sticker and a gun sticker in the rear window.
According to an alert from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the two are known to have ties to Northglenn, Broomfield, Aurora, and Louisville.
And while this case appears to have a resolution, some 9NEWS viewers and Comcast customers had questions about the alert itself. Their alert showed the words spread far apart across the screen. CBI told 9NEWS that they've never seen an alert like that before, and they will look into it.
