Virginia State Police have terminated an Amber Alert for 3-year-old Tommy Lee Able Engle. The boy was found with his father, Tommy Lee Travis Engle, in Pike County, Kentucky.

The boy’s father is being held at a detention center as charges are pending.

Sheriff Dan Smith says he was contacted by the boy’s father after midnight and  confirmed that the boy was ok.

“During the conversations with Engle, he would tell us that the child was fine, he let us talk to his son and he would send us text message pictures of the child,” the Sheriff told WTKR.  “I felt much better about the situation once we were able to talk about a resolution.”

Engle is currently wanted on two felony assault charges against the child’s mother.
