— The North Carolina Center for Missing Persons canceled its Amber Alert for a missing toddler from Asheville Friday morning after a family member of the man accused of taking the boy brought him to the Asheville Police Department. 

Authorities issued the alert about 11:30 p.m. Thursday after Russell Allen Wilson Squire allegedly took 16-month-old Jayden Wilson Squire from a motel on Tunnel Road in Asheville. 

It wasn't clear who brought Jayden to Asheville police or whether or not Russell Squire would face charges in the incident. 

No other information was immediately available.
