Rowlett Police are crediting a great-grandmother for ending an Amber Alert Sunday morning.

Late Saturday night, two-year-old King Henry was taken from his aunt's home. The aunt has legal custody of King.

King's biological mother, 19-year-old Treonya Henry allegedly took the child.

Rowlett Police Officer Cruz Hernandez tells KRLD News that police talked to the mom overnight about returning the child, and arranged a meeting place to do so.

Hernandez says when she never showed, they issued the Amber Alert shortly after four this morning.

King's great-grandmother later handed the boy over to police.

So far there have been no arrests, but the case is still under investigation.
