A 1-year-old boy was found safe after an AMBER Alert was issued on Monday morning, said the Perry County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio.

The boy, Steele Colt Estep, was taken from a home by a man who isn’t his biological father, according to authorities, which led to the AMBER Alert.

Storm Lightening Zeitler, 29, is suspected to have assaulted the boy before midnight at Monday Creek Township in Logan, the sheriff’s office added. Zeitler hasn’t been located as of around 8 a.m. local time.

He was last seen wearing a dark long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans, and a gray jacket with a skull emblazoned on the back. Zeitler is 5’9″ and weighs 180 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes, authorities said.

The suspect is believed to be driving a red 1998 Ford Contour with license number HCN4100.

Anyone who may have information can contact the Perry County Sheriffs Office at 740-342-4123, extension 1.

Officials didn’t provide any details exactly on where the boy was found.
