Authorities have confirmed that a 2-year-old Celina boy at the center of an AMBER Alert has been found safe. 

Celina police said around 12:45 p.m., the toddler was located in McKinney and was reunited with his mother. The boy was unharmed at the time officials found him. 

An alert was issued overnight after police said the boy was taken by his father, Isaac Pugh.
