An Amber Alert issued yesterday afternoon by the Edmonton Police was cancelled this morning.
Noah Ducharme, age 8, was found safe early this morning with his mother, who police say allegedly kidnapped the boy from the Waverley Elementary School in the area of 68 Street and 89 Avenue yesterday at 2:50 p.m.
The mother Brianne Hjalte, age 31, and the boy were located in Calgary.
An off duty Calgary Police Service member spotted Noah with his mother, thanks to the Amber Alert. RCMP members from Okotoks responded and took the mother into custody.
Hjalte was charged with one count of abduction under the Criminal Code, Section 283(1).
Police said in the initial Amber Alert that the child was believed to be in imminent danger and the public was asked not to approach the suspect.
