The Amber Alert for a three-year-old boy from southeastern B.C.'s Elk Valley has been cancelled after he was found safe in Montana.

B.C. RCMP confirmed Alvin Barnett is safe on Friday morning after his father Robert Barnett, 39, allegedly abducted him during a parental visit.

An Amber Alert in B.C. and Montana was triggered on Thursday afternoon. Montana officials had said they believed the boy was in "imminent danger."

A witness in Whitefish, Montana, about 80 kilometres south of the Canada-U.S. border crossing where Barnett's car was lasted spotted recognized the vehicle parked on a side street on Friday morning, said RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

He said the boy is tired and hungry but in good condition.

Robert Barnett is currently in the custody of police in Montana, but could face charges once he's returned to B.C., said Moskaluk.
