Kansas AMBER Alert: Garden City toddler found unharmed in Finney County


GARDEN CITY, Kan. — The Kansas Bureau of Investigation issued an AMBER Alert Wednesday morning for a 14-month-old boy they said was in imminent danger, and just before 8:30 a.m. authorities said the boy was found unharmed. The Garden City Police Department was looking for Sebastian Bautista and a 2011 white Chevrolet Tahoe SUV.

KBI says he was found safe in Finney County, and the driver who stole the Tahoe from his mother’s driveway had abandoned it.

Investigators say Sebastian’s mom placed him inside the Tahoe at 5 a.m. Wednesday to take him to a babysitter, went back into her home briefly, and then saw an unknown person driving the Tahoe away from her driveway.

A caller reported at 7 a.m. they saw the Tahoe with a driver speeding southbound on 83 Highway between Garden City and Liberal. Just before 8 a.m., KBI said that the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety would launch their AMBER Alert program as well.

KBI hasn’t given any details about the suspected driver.
