UPDATE: Missing infant located after Amber Alert issued

The California Highway Patrol reports that a missing 11-month-old boy whose grandmother allegedly abducted him from his mother Wednesday night has been located and is safe.

An Amber Alert was issued Thursdays morning for William Brown, an 11-month-old boy who was abducted around 8 p.m. Wednesday in San Francisco.

A person who saw the Amber Alert called 911 and reported seeing the boy and his grandmother at a liquor store in San Mateo, according to the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office spokesperson Max Szabo.

Phoebe Haynes, William’s 44-year-old grandmother, was arrested by Redwood City Police at a Big Lots in Redwood City, Szabo said in a statement.

San Francisco Police Department officers out of Bayview Station also responded to the scene of the arrest, Szabo said.

The child was medically cleared at the scene.

Haynes is in custody and being returned to San Francisco, Szabo said. Amber AlertCalifornia Highway PatrolCrimeSan Francisco
