JUSTIN — A young boy has been found safe after an Amber Alert was issued for the one year old after his non-custodial father, David Mascorro, was suspected of taking the boy from his mother's home in Denton County.
Authorities said the boy was found with Mascorro in Tallahassee. Both the son and the father were safe.
Justin police issued an alert Wednesday morning for one-year-old Malakai Izaak Mascorro.
Detectives said Mascorro snatched Malakai from his mother's Denton County home in the middle of the night while she was sleeping.
The suspect took all cell phones in the house and disabled the residence phone so that the child's mother would be unable to call for help, police said.Technorati Tags: Texas,Florida,NonCustodial,Father,October,WFAA,Staff,INTERACTIVE,toddler,Justin,Denton,Jose,Malakai,Mascorro,Also,Online,LINK,poster,Crime,news,Amber,Alert,David,Authorities,Tallahassee,Both,Izaak,cell,residence
