Amber Alert in Decatur?

Everyone is telling me about it, but I can't find any information on it. A couple of people told me they heard one for Decatur, Texas on the radio, but the WCSO's "Amber Alert Ticker" is silent. Edit: At 3:24 p.m. I heard WBAP "tease" the fact that at an Amber Alert had been issued for a seven month old in Decatur. Edit: It's something about a grandmother taking the child when she was allegedly unauthorized to do so.

I am not ruling it out-but there is nothing posted on the codeamber.org website. Maybe they found the baby? Did you guys hear anything?

The Decatur police department issued an Amber Alert Tuesday afternoon for a seven-month-old child who was taken from his grandmother.

Police said John Christopher Stephenson Jr. was last seen around 1 p.m. with his mother, who does not have legal custody of the boy.

The suspect, Alicia Pearl Stephenson, 26, was driving an older blue Chevrolet pickup truck with damage to the left front fender. Police said her last known address was in Durant, Okla.

Anyone with information about the infant or his mother was asked to call Decaur police at 940-627-1500.

Baby was found safe in Justin, Tx. The children were placed with their grandmother from Oklahoma CPS.
It has now been found out that grandmother "let" the mother take all four children for the weekend, but she wouldn't give the baby back, thus Amber Alert. Grandmother will have alot of questions to answer as well as the mother.
