A child who was the subject of an AMBER alert was found unharmed Tuesday night, Middletown police said, and two suspects are in custody.
Police issued an AMBER Alert for Armel Muhammed, 4, from Middletown, after he went missing on Tuesday afternoon. Just before 9 p.m. the child was found unharmed in Wethersfield.
His mother said the boy had high-level autism and there were concerns for his health. He will be taken to hospital as a precaution, police said.
Middletown Police have taken stock after a 4-year-old boy was found unharmed following an AMBER alert on Tuesday.
Middletown Police said an uncle who lives in New Britain was watching the child and left Muhammed in the care of a family friend, identified as Stephanie Michelle Fonda, 39, when he left for work Monday evening. Police say Fonda took the child and parent’s car, a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu, without permission. Investigators believe that David Fonda, her husband, 38, was also involved.
Police found the child, the two suspects and the car at the 5th Avenue Motel in Wethersfield.
Stephanie and David Fonda are both in custody and charges are awaited in New Britain, Middletown police have said.
The AMBER alert has been canceled.
