LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a missing 3-year-old child taken from a home in Duson has been found safe.

KATC TV (https://bit.ly/1g8VWIx ) report the toddler was taken to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office to be reunited with her mother.

State police issued an Amber Alert early Friday morning for Kailey Kristy Taylor. They said her 30-year-old father took her from his mother-in-law’s home Thursday night.

Deputies were concerned for the child’s safety because she was taken after the father got in a violent domestic encounter with his wife. Deputies say the father then allegedly sent a text message to his wife, threatening to kill the child and himself.

Deputies tell KATC they are not actively searching for the father, but they would like to talk to him regarding the incident.
