TEMPE, Ariz. -

The Amber Alert has been canceled for a 21-month-old child forcibly removed from a daycare center by his non-custodial mother.

Authorities say 35-year-old Olivia Mosley forcibly removed her child from day care agency in Tempe after learning that Child Protective Services was going to take custody of her child.

"CPS was able to call ahead to the preschool to let them know that Ms. Mosley was on her way. Staff at Sunrise Preschool did an actually good job to hide Javison and prevent Ms. Mosley from taking him," said Tempe Police Lt. Scott Smith.

Mosley got into a physical altercation with Sunrise Preschool staff while removing the boy.  She fled the area in a 1994 maroon 4-door Lexus with Arizona license plate BCD4654.

"Mosley fled at a high rate of speed, we were told her passenger door was still ajar when she took off."

Just before 6 p.m., about one hour after the alert went out, Mosley was located and taken into custody in Guadalupe. The boy is safe.

An Amber Alert was issued because Mosley was considered a danger to herself and others.  She suffers from mental illness and has not been taking her prescribed medication, police said.

Tempe Police did not say how Mosley and her son were located. Mosley has had prior contact with police.

Statement by Sunrise Preschools

"Today an unfortunate situation happened at one of our preschools. Child Protective Services alerted us that one of the children in our care was not to be released into the care of his mother.   Proper procedures were followed by moving the child to a different area of the building but moments later the child was forcibly removed from our premises by his mother despite every physical and verbal attempt made by our staff to keep the child on campus. The police arrived shortly afterward and we were able to use our surveillance video to assist.

"As a leader in childcare in the Valley for over the last 25 years, Sunrise Preschools has made the safety and well being of the children in our care our top priority.  We are relieved to hear that the child and mother were both found in good condition.  We thank the Tempe Police for their swift action in this matter." -Dana Vela, President of Sunrise Preschools
