The Amber Alert for a 3-year-old Oklahoma boy who was allegedly abducted by his father amidst a custody battle Tuesday night has been cancelled.

The boy was found safe and placed into the custody of the Department of Human Services Wednesday afternoon (Aug. 28), according to a release from the state’s Department of Public Safety.

Kegan Manning was with his mother traveling on West Flint Rock Road in Cherokee County around 8 p.m. Tuesday night when she told deputies she saw a vehicle following too closely, so she pulled over.

As she did, she said three vehicles suddenly boxed her in. The boy’s father, Johnny Manning, 24, got out of one, slashed her tires, and tried to force her to sign a custody agreement but she refused. She claimed the boy’s father forcibly took him.
