13 Year-Old Abducted from Boston Located, Amber Alert Deactivated

Amber Alert Final

BOSTON, Mass. (WGGB) – Police have located a teenage boy who had been allegedly taken by his father.

At about 7:30 p.m., the Boston police responded to a reported abduction at 9 Highland Street in Roxbury.  Police learned that Jonathan Moore Sr. forced his way into the home at that address, and assaulted and severely injured the person inside.

According to the preliminary investigation, Moore claimed to have a handgun and threatened to use it. He then allegedly abducted his son, 13-year-old Jonathan Moore Jr.

Moore Sr. was seen fleeing the area in a red Toyota Camry with his girlfriend 25-year-old Ashley Smith.

After several hours of searching for the boy and working to ensure his safety, Mass. State Police issued an Amber Alert

Around 10:45 p.m., that alert was deactivated after the boy was located safe in Cambridge

Moore Sr. and Smith, however, is still on the loose, and authorities are still working to locate them.

    @Amanda look Watts wrong with watt your saying there family its doing it so why a alert well idk if you recall not long ago in CT The grandma that picked her 2 grandkids up at daycare on the kids bday and decided to use a gun to kill them and herself so that’s a huge reason why, and in thus case i don’t see anything about thr boy bring in a foster home do where is everyone getting that from lady nights alert, if the father is abducting his kid kids there is a good reason why they are nut allowed to be around them or it wouldn’t be a crime!!
