HOLLEY, N.Y. (WHEC) — The teenage parents whose two-month-old child was the subject of an AMBER Alert Wednesday turned themselves into the Newark Police Department Thursday.

It all started when two-month-old Natalie Huntington was taken from a home on Manning Rd. at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies issued the AMBER Alert at around 2:35 p.m. Wednesday.

When the grandparents woke up and saw the teens were gone with the baby, they called the police.

Alyssa Bel, 15, and Kevin Huntington, 16, the baby's parents, took Natalie to an extended family member's house in Auburn, NY, and left her there.

The alert was canceled at around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday when police found the baby safe.

The baby is now with Orleans County Child and Family Services.

Thursday, News10NBC Investigative Journalist Jennifer Lewke learned Kevin Huntington Jr. slipped out of the Newark Police station while being questioned about trying to forcibly take the baby from her grandfather's house over the weekend.

So when the baby went missing again Wednesday, the AMBER Alert was triggered.

Police said Huntington is wanted on a family court warrant in Wayne County that is not related to either incident, so when he's picked up, he'll be taken to Wayne County on the warrant.
