BOTHELL, Wash. - A missing one-year-old boy was found safely early Friday morning at his grandmother's house in Kent after police say the kidnapper dropped the child off there.

An Amber Alert had been issued for Jahvell Scott after police said his father, 23-year-old Terrance Lee-Hammond Jr., kidnapped him at gun point from his mother's home in Bothell on NE 190th Place Thursday night.

Witnesses told police he left in a dark-colored four-door sedan. The suspect is still at large.

Police believe it is a 1998-2000 Toyota Corolla and said there was also another man in the car at the time.

They also said the car's passenger side rear window may be damaged or missing. The passenger side brake light is also not working.

Witnesses said Lee-Hammond Jr. was last seen wearing a gray hoodie with black splatters and a horizontal black flag with metallic gold stars and stripes on the front. He was also wearing faded jeans with large bleached portions, tan shoes and a thick gold chain with an unknown medallion.

Police said Lee-Hammond Jr. should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who sees Lee-Hammond Jr. or a vehicle matching the description should call 911.
