Middle-of-night Amber Alert wakes people across Iowa

Taylor Mason Milroy in police custody after overnight Amber Alert reported abduction

DES MOINES, Iowa - People across Iowa were wakened by an Amber Alert at 1:18 Tuesday morning.  

The Amber Alert activated emergency tones on cell phones, weather radios, and radio and television station Emergency Alert Systems after two small children were reported abducted by a non-custodial parent in Toronto, in northeastern Iowa.

The two and four-year-old children were believed to be with their father, who the Iowa Department of Public Safety said might be armed and dangerous.

The Amber Alert was cancelled about two hours later as the Clinton County Sheriff's Department reported the boys were found.  

The Iowa State Patrol says Milton is in police custody.
