A two-year-old boy has been found after his non-custodial father allegedly took him from a Perry County home. 

According to the Perry County Sheriff's Office, Dawson Bonee was taken by his father, Jeremy Bonee, Thursday night. The boy was taken after some sort of incident at a home on Kelly Landing Road, southwest of Linden.

Investigators said Jeremy Bonee is the child's father but he doesn't have any parental rights to the child.

Deputies were also concerned because they believed Jeremy Bonee had been drinking alcohol.

Officials later confirmed Friday morning that both had been located. The elder Bonee was taken into custody. It's unclear what charges he'll be facing.
