Alabama children who were focus of Amber Alert, abduction investigation, found safe

The two children thought to be involved in an abduction in Alabama have been found safe.

Police in Alabama issued an Amber Alert on Tuesday for the two children with investigators believing a 13-year-old girl may be responsible for the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy.

The pair were found uninjured in Selma, Alabama, about an hour west of the state's capital of Montgomery where they were last seen.

Earlier authorities said investigators found a 2011 white Chevrolet Equinox they believe the girl drove, but the two children were still missing. The Montgomery Police Department did not offer any additional information on where they were rescued or why they disappeared.

The children's mother Shardasha Tyus reported their disappearance on Tuesday at about 2:38 a.m., Montgomery Police Major Saba Coleman told USA TODAY.

Investigators identified the missing 5-year-old as Kaiden Tymari Perryman, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.
