A newborn taken by his parents after Child Protective Services (CPS) was granted custody was the subject of an Amber Alert issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety on Thursday.

The mother has now surrendered 10-day-old Ryder Williams safely.

As of 10 p.m. on July 14, the baby was in the care of CPS, according to the Coffee City Police Department. Coffee is a town about 100 miles southeast of Dallas.

The child’s parents, 30-year-old Michelle Wolf and 36-year-old Ricky Williams abducted Ryder after the newborn tested positive for narcotics, and CPS was awarded custody.

Coffee Chief of Police JohnJay Portillo stated that the mother called the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday night to turn herself in and safely give the child to CPS.

“Words cannot express how happy we are that the child is safe,” stated Portillo in a Facebook post.
