An Amber Alert for a 14-month-old Houston boy was cancelled after he was found safe in Arkansas, police said Tuesday.
The person of interest in the case, his father, was found dead nearby from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.
Houston police said Tyemetheus Pack was reported missing early Tuesday morning after his mom was found dead at their northwest side apartment. Early on, police named Tumetheus Levastavian Pack, the boy’s father, a person of interest in the case.
Authorities asked the public to look out for Pack, who was said to possibly be in a green Suburban with Arkansas plates.
Apartment on Pinemont where a Houston mother was found.
Several hours after the Amber Alert was issued, Tumetheus Pack was found dead in a vehicle in Prescott, Arkansas. Authorities there said the 14-month-old boy was in the vehicle along with two other kids. Their relationships, if any, were not immediately known.
Tuesday’s manhunt started when authorities found the young boy’s mother, Angel Jackson, dead. Jackson was last heard from on Christmas Eve when she reportedly sent someone a text saying she had been shot. A maintenance man called Houston police to her apartment on Pinemont overnight for a welfare check.
Police have not confirmed how the mother died.
The child is currently the care of Child Protective Services.
