Missing Longview Boy Found, Father Arrested

A 4 year old Longview boy, kidnapped last night by his father, is now safe and back with his mother. Police released an "Amber Alert" last night to local media.  They now say they shouldn't have.   In a press release today, the Longview police department writes, "information that was originally released stated that an 'Amber Alert' had been issued by mistake." 

The police department sent the information to Austin, however it was rejected because  it not meeting the requirements since the suspect in the case is the child's father."  Police arrested the boy's father, "Luis Zamaora, Senior" on a violation of probation warrant from an earlier family violence case.
