An Amber Alert was briefly issued Wednesday morning for a baby who was allegedly abducted by his father from a town in northern Alberta’s Peace River region.

The alert said the seven-month-old was abducted from his home in Fairview by his dad.

The alert was issued at 10:51 a.m., and cancelled half an hour later at 11:18 a.m., when police said the child was found safe and a suspect was in custody.

The vehicle they were in was last seen leaving Fairview in an unknown direction, so the Amber Alert was issued province-wide before it was cancelled.

No details on where they were found were released.

Fairview is about 530 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.
