COFFEE CITY, Texas (KTRK) -- A newborn at the center of an Amber Alert out of Coffee City in east Texas has been found.

The alert was issued on Thursday for Ryder Williams, who was last seen July 11 in Tyler, Texas. According to Coffee City police, Child Protective Services was given custody of the child, who they said was taken by his parents Michelle Wolfe and Ricky Williams.

Police said they were also informed by CPS that the baby tested positive for narcotics.

Within the last hour since the alert was issued, we received reports that the boy's mother, Wolfe, is in Hunt County and contacted authorities. She is planning to turn the baby over to CPS.

The boy's father, Williams, was found in Tyler. Charges are pending on the parents until authorities get back the bloodwork results on the baby.
