NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says the Amber Alert issued for an East Tennessee toddler has been canceled after the boy was found safe.

The TBI said Thursday that 21-month-old Caylen Williams was believed to be taken by his non-custodial mother, Lakeisha Williams. She was wanted by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office on a charge of parental kidnapping.

The TBI later tweeted that the boy had been found safe and that Lakeisha Williams had been arrested.
