Amber Alert officially called off. Child is now in DHS custody.
It appears the child at the center of an Amber Alert issued by the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is safe, in Tulsa, and police have plans to pick him up.
The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office issued an Amber Alert for a 3-year-old boy whom they said was violently abducted from his mother by his non-custodial father.
They initially said the suspect, Johnny Manning, was driving a white Plymouth, but later changed the Amber Alert to say he may have been driving a black 2004 Chevy Tahoe pickup truck with Oklahoma tag 524 EUI.
However, KRMG's partners at FOX23 found that vehicle at the home of Manning's parents, near E. Pine St. and North Yale Ave. in Tulsa.
KRMG was told that three vehicles followed the boy's mother from her job in Tulsa to a location on Flint Rock Road in the Tenkiller Harbor area of Cherokee County where the boy was abducted.
Manning had reportedly slashed one of her tires in an attempt to keep her from leaving the scene.
But Manning's father says the mother's story is not true.
Tulsa police now confirm the boy is in Tulsa, that they have heard from Johnny Manning's attorney, and that they are making arrangements to pick the child up.
KRMG is awaiting a response from Cherokee County authorities about the latest developments.
