Asheville Police say a missing 16-month-old child has been found safe and an AMBER Alert has been canceled.

The child was brought to the Asheville Police Department by a relative of the accused abductor.

The search for the child's father, who is accused of abducting the child, continues.

Asheville Police officers are looking for Russell Allen Wilson Squire, 25, of Asheville.

Sergeant Dave Romick of the Asheville Police Department stated that the child's mother reported that her son was abducted by his father at the Thunderbird Motel, located at 835 Tunnel Road, around 5:26 p.m. Thursday evening.

According to Romick, she was strangled by Squire in a motel room to the point that she lost consciousness. Squire then fled the motel on foot with the child, who was only wearing a diaper.

Russell Allen Wilson Squire is a white male, approximately 5'11" and weighs 180 pounds. He has black hair, green eyes and was last seen wearing a white t-shirt, pants and white Nike Jordan tennis shoes. He has a tattoo of a cross on his back and his hair is long and in dreadlocks.

It is not known as to which direction they are believed to be traveling.

If anyone has any knowledge as to Squires whereabouts they are asked to call the Asheville Police Department immediately at (828) 259-5854 or call 911 or *HP.
