On Wednesday afternoon, the child Malakai Blake Greene was the focus of an Amber Alert from the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office.

When a law enforcement body believes that a kid has been kidnapped and is in immediate danger, they issue an Amber Alert. The “AMBER” stands for “America’s Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response.”

This initiative was in response to the 1996 kidnapping and murder of 9-year-old Amber Hagerman in Arlington, Texas.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said that the toddler had been found safe one hour after the Amber Alert had been issued on Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office merely confirmed that Malakai was unharmed and withheld information about the location of the duo’s discovery or if Alyssa Greene, the biological mother, would now face legal action.
