(KFVS) -

An Amber Alert issued on Friday, August 4 out Kansas City, Kansas for a two-year-old boy has been canceled.

According to authorities, the boy was found safe and the two suspects are in custody.

Jasmine "Brunt" Redmond called our sister station KCTV5 News in Kansas City and told them the boy was safe with his father. She claimed that reports that she and Joshua Brunt used a gun and mace are wrong.

At around 12:53 p.m., authorities say the child was forcibly taken from his biological mother by his non-custodial father.

The father, 25-year-old Joshua Brunt, allegedly used a gun to force compliance and his girlfriend, 24-year-old Jasmine "Brunt" Redmond, allegedly used mace/OC spray during the event.
