— Authorities canceled an Amber Alert for a missing 5-year-old Wilson boy who, authorities say, was kidnapped by his father early Saturday after he stabbed the boy's mother.

Wilson police said that Isaac Bautista Piedra was found safe at his grandparents' home in Duplin County late Saturday. He was unharmed.

Police believe that Rey Fernando Bautista Osorio, 34, stabbed his wife, Ma Natividad Piedra-Maced, 31, in the chest and then took their son from 1111 Arrington Ave. sometime before 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

Piedra-Maced was flown to Pitt Memorial Hospital in Greenville, where she was in critical condition.
 
Osorio took Isaac to a relative in Durham, who then took the boy to Piedra-Marcedo's parents in Duplin County late Saturday, police said. They contacted the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, who reunited Isaac with his mother.
 
Osorio's relative who brought Issac to his grandparents hasn't been identified, police said.
 
Authorities also found a black 2001 Nissan Xterra that Osorio had been driving at Interstate 70 and U.S. 70 around 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
 
Osorio is wanted on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He might be heading to Wayne County or Mexico and is also known to frequent Pink Hill and Albertson. 
 
Anyone with information about Osorio is asked to call the Wilson Police Department immediately at 252-399-2367.
