HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say a missing child whose mother was found dead has been found safe in Arkansas where his father has been discovered dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
A Texas-wide Amber Alert had been issued for 14-month-old Tyemetheus Pack after his mother, Angel Jackson, was found dead earlier Tuesday in Houston. The 26-year-old woman last was seen Christmas Eve and had texted a message that she’d been shot.
The child’s father, Tumetheus Pack, 44, had been sought by police as a person of interest.
Houston homicide investigator Paul Vela says Pack and the boy were found near Prescott, Arkansas, and accompanied by two other children and a woman. Arkansas state police say the shooting occurred as their car was being pulled over on Interstate 30 about 300 miles northeast of Houston.
