Update: Amber Alert canceled after two Wichita boys located

Local

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Two Wichita boys were located following an Amber Alert early Friday. The Wichita Police Department said the suspect is in custody.

At 9:22 p.m. Thursday, Wichita police said Gary Lowe IV and Jamias Lowe were allegedly taken from their mother by their father, Gary Lowe III.

Apparently, he didn’t have custodial rights and allegedly made homicidal statements. It is why police wanted the KBI to issue an Amber Alert.

A few hours later, police located the suspect and the children.

The KBI said the Amber Alert was issued after the Wichita Police Department reached out to them. It was determined that the case met DOJ recommended criteria for issuing an alert.

No Kansas law enforcement agency has the ability to activate the Emergency Alert System (EAS), the cell phone alerts called Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEAs), or the additional public alerting tools for child abductions, other than the KBI.
