Amber Alert For Missing Texas Toddler Discontinued; Suspect In Custody

An AMBER Alert for a missing baby has been discontinued after the toddler was found at a home in Live Oak Wednesday evening. 

According to the Live Oak Police Chief, the child was somewhat terrified and that he believes the suspect knew somebody at the house where the child was found. 

Undercover officers from the San Antonio Police Department had an idea where the suspect was going, and they were able to find him and the little child. The suspect was taken into custody and is believed to be the 2-year-old boy’s father. 

Earlier, an AMBER Alert was issued for the missing and potentially endangered boy. Police said the child was last seen along the 11000 block of Parliament Street late Tuesday night. Authorities believed he was abducted by 28-year-old Erik Stutzman, who stands about 5 feet 8, and has black hair with brown eyes.

Authorities say the kid’s presumed abductor was driving a dark 2019 Toyota Corolla with Texas tag NTZ6442. 

SAPD at first made the public aware of the child’s vanishing via the office’s Facebook page Wednesday morning not long after 10 a.m. Photographs given by authorities showed the boy has blonde hair with dark-hued eyes. 

As an update, there are several criteria that should be met in Texas for an AMBER Alert to be issued, including a conviction by law implementation that the kid is in impending danger and affirmation that a kidnapping happened.
