A boy who was once the subject of a Florida Amber Alert has been found in Duluth, a West Palm Beach TV station reported.

A public information officer for the Riviera Beach Police Department told WPBF-TV that 2-year-old Le-Rail Johnson was located in Duluth and appeared to be in good health and unharmed.  A woman who was listed as part of the alert was taken into custody in Woodbury, Minn. without incident.

The woman was arrested on two charges of felony child abuse related to two other children who were removed from her custody earlier this week.  Police said the woman and the 2-year-old boy were no longer at her Florida home when officials went there Thursday.

Police said the woman was found as she returned to a vehicle with Minnesota license plates that had been included in the Amber Alert.

The alert had been issued Friday afternoon but was later downgraded to an "active investigation."  Minnesota law enforcement agencies assisted in the case.
