A child who was the subject of an Amber Alert out of Texas was found safe in Arkansas after authorities say he was abducted by his non-custodial parents.

According to Texas authorities, 10-month-old Jax Laymance was reportedly abducted from his grandparents’ home in Palestine, Texas.

Early Friday morning, the Amber Alert for Laymance was canceled after he was found in Arkansas.

According to information from the White County Sheriff's Office, deputies received a message from the FBI regarding the Amber Alert and that a possible suspect's phone was pinged near the county.

The suspect's vehicle returned to an address on Rhoden Road in Judsonia.

Jax Laymance was found in a car seat in the back seat of the car. He was placed in an ambulance at the scene due to the cold weather, then he was turned over to the Arkansas Department of Human Services.

The sheriff's department in Anderson County, Texas, sent warrants of arrest for the parents. White County deputies arrested Morgan Mosley, 24, and Jeremy Laymance, 27, on felony charges of interference with child custody.

Mosley and Laymance are currently in the White County jail on $50,000 bond and are awaiting extradition back to Texas.
