Syracuse Police continue to search for a child who has been missing since Saturday night. A news site in Syracuse, Syracuse.com, reports that a man fitting the description of her father has been taken into custody.

An Amber Alert was issued for 21-month-old Maddox Lawrence, who is believed to have been taken by her father, Ryan Lawrence, 24. Police say the pair's last known location was possibly a parking lot at Destiny USA.

According to the Amber Alert website, Ryan left home with Maddox last night after leaving information suggesting he planned to harm himself, and possibly the child. The alert goes on to say that Ryan has a history of mental illness, and is emotionally unstable.
