SALT LAKE CITY — An Amber Alert out of Carbon County was canceled Saturday morning after Idaho authorities reported the two missing boys it referenced had been found. 

The Carbon Sheriff’s office says authorities took the suspect, Derek Michael Rowley, into custody at about 1:00 AM Saturday in Elko, Nevada. The Elko and Carbon Sheriff’s departments received information he may be in that area and local officers made contact with him and took him into custody.

Carbon authorities say Rowley provided the location of the two missing boys after being apprehended. Officers then found both the children and their mother.

“The boys were in good health and are now safe,” Carbon County Sheriff’s office said in press release. “This is still an ongoing investigation into the whereabouts of Derek and the boys for the last 3 days.

Officials say the children were reunited with family members. According to the Elko County Sheriff’s office it arrested Rowley “on the Carbon County, Utah outstanding warrant, charging Kidnapping listing no bail.”

Carbon County Sheriff’s Office sent out the Amber Alert on Friday for eight-year-old Manson Rowley and six-year-old Arsen Mangum. Authorities said Rowley was making threats to harm himself and the boys. He was legally not allowed to contact the boys.
