Update:  Late Friday afternoon, authorities issued word that the case had been resolved,  and the Amber Alert posting was taken down from the national website.

 

An Amber Alert issued by New York authorities has been extended to Connecticut.  Police say four-year-old Frederick McCluskey was taken by his father,  whose name is also Frederick McCluskey,  using physical force during a domestic dispute.

Police say the child is missing from Marlboro, New York,  and the two were last seen in a red Honda Civic, with a blue and gold New York license plate, number FHX9276.

The child has blonde hair and blue eyes, and a small scar under his right eye.   He’s about four feet tall and weighs fifty pounds.  He was last seen wearing a red shirt and jeans.

His father, who is six-foot-three, also has blonde hair and blue eyes.  He was last seen wearing a sweatshirt and jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to dial 9-1-1 and report the sighting to authorities.
