Posted:

GAINESVILLE, TX -- A baby is safe tonight after he was the subject of an Amber Alert.

Cooke County Sheriff Mike Compton says that Jason Bailey Colwell, age 1, was handed over to authorities in California today by his father.

The alert was issued Thursday night after the child and his father disappeared. Sheriff Compton says the child suffers from an asthma condition and they were concerned for his well being.

On Thursday, authorities say Colwell took his son, Jason Bailey Colwell when he found out a judge issued an order to take the child from him. Compton tells us they issued the Amber Alert in conjunction with CPS. The man and his child were last seen together in Gainesville.

Authorities say Colwell had failed a urine test and his son was to be placed back in foster care. Gainesville police say that so far no charges have been filed.
