Boy from BC found safe in Montana, Amber Alert canceled

An Amber Alert was issued for a three-year-old boy from British Columbia who was taken by his father on Thursday, but the boy was found safe Friday in Montana.

Police were looking for 3-year-old Alvin Barnett.

Investigators say Alvin's biological father, Robert Barnett (photo below), took Alvin during a supervised visit in British Columbia Thursday and crossed into the United States in Montana Thursday at about 3:15 p.m.

Thursday was also Alvin's 3rd birthday.

Amber Alert information was also posted on Washington reader boards along roadways.
