An Amber Alert was issued in Oklahoma for 3-year-old Kegan Manning on Wednesday, and officials said his father, Johnny Manning, is the suspect and is armed with knives and could have guns.

Cherokee County issued the Amber Alert after Manning, who is driving a white 2000 2-door Pontiac Grand Am, apparently took his son at around 8 p.m. on Tuesday. The alleged abduction took place in Cookson, Okla.

Officials said he also might be driving a a 2004 black Chevy Tahoe with the license 524-EUI. It has a large brush guard on the front, reported KFOR-TV.

The suspect could be driving a blue 1985 – 1990 Chevy Blazer or a 1990s red two-door car, authorities said.

Police said that Johnny and a group confronted Kegan’s mother and fought about the custody of Kegan. The mother said that Johnny slashed her car’s tires and took off with the boy.

Kegan was last seen wearing orange pants and a gray Tasmanian Devil t-shirt.

If anyone has information about the incident or sees the suspect and child, they should call Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office at 918-456-2583.
