UPDATED: March 21, 2014 9:35 a.m.

LEBANON, Va. — An Amber Alert for 11-year-old Lucas Ezra Silas Guinn has been cancelled after police found the boy unharmed during a traffic stop in southwest Virginia.

The alert was issued Thursday for Lucas, who police feared was in “extreme danger” after last being seen at Lebanon Middle School. Police had been searching for his father, 67-year-old Jimmy Donald Guinn. Guinn was taken into custody by authorities during the traffic stop.

The Amber Alert said the two might be traveling in a 2004 purple Freightliner truck or a pickup truck. Investigators believed Guinn might have been heading toward West Virginia or Ohio.
