WARREN, Ohio — Authorities have located the infant who was allegedly taken by his non-custodial father.

Thursday afternoon the Ohio Attorney General’s Office issued an Amber Alert for 2-month-old Jasper Stennett who was taken from a residence on Hazelwood Avenue in Warren at around 1:20 p.m.

Authorities believe Jasper was taken by his father, 20-year-old James Stennett.

According to court records, James does not have custody of Jasper.  He is wanted for one count of domestic violence and one count of interfering with custody.

James is rumored to keep a shotgun under the front seat of his vehicle.  Warren police claimed James said he would harm law enforcement if they tried to stop him.  Authorities described him as armed and considered extremely violent.  Officers were warned to use extreme caution.

Thursday evening Warren police confirmed the child had been recovered and is safe.

Jasper is reportedly with his grandmother at the police station.  Authorities are still working to sort out the incident.

James was caught on the east side of Warren and is currently in police custody.

**Editor’s note: Authorities originally reported the abducted child was a girl, then later corrected to say the infant was a boy**
