UPDATE: Iowa Amber Alert Cancelled

ONAWA, Iowa (AP) -- A mother described by authorities as a "noncustodial parent" has been arrested and her two young sons are safe hours after an Amber Alert was issued in western Iowa for the boys.

The Monona County Sheriff's Office in Onawa said early Tuesday it was looking for 4-year-old Labrie Parker and 1-month old Lawson Gualazzi. Authorities say 30-year-old Cari Eich abducted the boys and is suspected of being under the influence of methamphetamine.

Iowa Department of Safety communications manager Jessica Lown said Tuesday evening that Eich and the children had been found safe across the border in Nebraska and that Eich is in custody.

Lown says officials believe Eich is a "noncustodial parent" of the children and that it did not appear she ever had custody rights.

ONAWA, Iowa (AP) -- A vehicle matching the description and license plate in the Amber Alert was stopped north of Fremont, Neb., and Iowa authorities confirmed the alleged abductor had been found.

Authorities said Eich was arrested without incident, and the children were found unharmed in the truck.

The three were last seen in Onawa, and their destination is unknown. They believe Eich is driving a blue 2002 Chevy Silverado pickup.
