Police say a 1-year-old boy taken from San Francisco by his possibly suicidal father has been found in Los Angeles.

LA police say the pair was found in the Palms section of the city Friday night.

The father, Jason Lam, is in custody and his car has been impounded. The boy, Makai Bangoura, is safe.

The boy's mother reported that his father had not returned him Thursday, and on Friday an Amber Alert was issued that has now been called off.

After saying the father and son could be anywhere, authorities a few hours later said they might be heading south on Interstate 5 toward Southern California.
