SEMINOLE - An AMBER Alert issued out of Oklahoma has been called off after a 5-month-old was found in Seminole just before 1:30 this morning.

Seminole Chief Bernie Kraft says the infant is from Kingfisher County, Oklahoma, and local law enforcement officials there were investigating this case as a kidnapping. The mother of the infant is in jail, and the infant was currently staying with the grandmother. Cindy Findley and Jennifer Skousen, relatives of the infant, are said to have confronted the grandmother in Oklahoma, saying the former step-mother has temporary custody, and had papers to prove it. They then drove the infant to Seminole, where all arrived safely at the former-stepmother's home in Seminole.

Seminole Police were also provided papers confirming the former-stepmother's temporary custody. Findley and Skousen were cooperative with police and Texas Child Protective Services will talk with the family and monitor the situation.
