CENTERVILLE, Mo. (KY3) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol has canceled an AMBER Alert it issued earlier Sunday, saying two boys reported missing from Reynolds County, Missouri, have been found safe.

Authorities found Carter Baker, 9, and Grant Baker, 7, after they were last seen near the city of Centerville.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Jason Baker is wanted in the investigation and did not clarify whether he has been located. The two children were last seen with him prior to being found.

MSHP initially issued the AMBER Alert around 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Earlier in the day, a possibly-armed suspect shot the children’s mother, left with the boys in a vehicle, according to MSHP.

The incident was reported around 10:45 a.m. around Highway 21 and Highway 72 near Centerville. It’s unclear what kind of injuries the mother may have suffered.

The Missouri Highway Patrol is seeking a white Chevrolet truck with Missouri license plate number: 0WDV42 in the investigation. That vehicle is believed to be heading southbound on Highway 72.

A second vehicle is also wanted in the investigation. MSHP is looking for a cream or ivory 2005 Chevy Tahoe with license plate number UM2W75.
