A 3-year-old boy who was reportedly abducted by his father Friday evening at a Roswell apartment complex has been located and is safe, police said.

Ameer Williams was returned to his mother about 10 a.m. Saturday, Roswell police spokesman Officer Sean Thompson said.

An Amber Alert was issued for the child overnight after police said he was kidnapped at gunpoint from the Oaks at Holcomb Bridge Apartments. Authorities are still searching for the boy’s father, 48-year-old Kenya McQueen.

Officers responded to an aggravated assault and kidnapping at the Roswell apartment about 10 p.m. Friday, police said.

Nobody was injured in the incident, but McQueen allegedly pointed a gun at Williams’ mother before taking the child, according to investigators. He does not have custody of his son.
