ALPENA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The AMBER Alert for missing 3-year-old Keegan Waterman has been lifted, but he is still considered missing, according to the Michigan State Police Alpena Post.

Police say Waterman and his mother, 39-year-old Christina Waterman, were spotted in Muncie, Ind.  Tuesday and they no longer believe the boy is in danger.

“At present, there is no indication that Keegan is endangered or that any criminal violation has been committed,” a release from the Alpena Post says.

Officials say they received a report that Christina Waterman took Keegan from his Alpena Township residence in the middle of the night on Aug. 17.  An AMBER Alert was issued because of the “suspicious circumstances” of their disappearance.

MSP Lt. Scott Woodard told WJRW that a U.S. Postal Service worker in Muncie spotted Christina and Keegan.

The AMBER Alert has been cancelled and the case is now being investigated as a missing persons complaint until officials verify Keegan’s welfare, according to a release.   Officials believe they may be traveling to Tennessee, North Carolina or Arizona.

Anyone with information on Christina or Keegan Waterman’s whereabouts are asked to call the MSP Alpena Post at 989-354-4101.
