AMBER Alert discontinued for 2-year-old San Antonio boy; suspect in custody

Previously, an AMBER alert was issued for the missing toddler.

SAN ANTONIO – An AMBER alert for a missing toddler was set after the little boy was found in a home in Live Oak on Wednesday afternoon.

The Live Oak police chief said the child was a little scared. The boss believes the suspect knew someone in the house where the child was found.

The undercover officers at the San Antonio Police Department had an inkling of where the suspect was going, and they were able to find him and the toddler. The police took the suspect into custody. He is said to be the father of the 2 year old.

Previously, an AMBER alert was issued for the missing and potentially endangered 2-year-old boy.

Police said the child was last seen late Tuesday night at the 11000 block on Parliament Street. Authorities believe he was kidnapped by 28-year-old Erik Stutzman, who is six feet tall, weighs about 140 pounds and has black hair with brown eyes.

Authorities say the boy’s alleged kidnapper was driving a gray 2019 Toyota Corolla with the Texan license plate NTZ6442.

On Wednesday morning, shortly after 10 a.m., SAPD first drew the public’s attention to the child’s disappearance via the ministry’s Facebook page. Photos from authorities showed that the boy has blonde hair with dark eyes.

As a reminder, in Texas, several criteria must be met for an AMBER alert to be issued, including convincing law enforcement that the child is in imminent danger and confirming that an abduction has occurred.
