1-year-old found safe; Amber Alert canceled

A couple suspected of abducting a 1-year-old from Montana and triggering an Amber Alert was arrested in Fife this morning without incident. After someone saw the couple’s vehicle and called 911, the man and woman were found outside an apartment building, said Lieutenant Kevin Farris of the Fife Police Department.

The alert was issued late last night after the Kalispell boy, Brayden Blasius, was reported taken by his non-custodial parents, Beau Blasius, 28, and Bryndi Gibson, 23. The couple was believed to be headed toward Washington State.

The Flathead County, Mont., Sheriff’s Office warned that the boy might be in danger because the couple was suspected of drug use. The Sheriff’s Office initially said it was looking for a blue Ford Focus but this morning said that car had been located in Montana. Authorities shifted the search to what they believed the couple was using, a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck reported stolen in Montana.

Fife officials said the boy was unharmed and was turned over to the state Child Protective Services. The man and woman were  questioned by Fife police detectives and were expected to be booked into the Pierce County jail today on charges of being in  possession of a stolen vehicle.

Farris said Montana officials were preparing charging documents that could include custodial interference and burglary.

Gibson has outstanding warrants in Washington for theft and driving with a suspended license.
