A 1-year-old boy was found safe at his grandmother’s house after he was taken by his father at gunpoint from the boy’s mother in Bothell.

The Bothell Police Department received a call from the boy’s mother at 7:05 p.m. Thursday, reporting that her son, Jahvell Scott, was taken from her at gunpoint by his father, Terrance Lee-Hammond Jr.

This occurred in the 9800 block of N.E. 190th St., at the Heritage Park Apartment complex.

BPD issued an Amber Alert, which was canceled after Jahvell was located at Lee-Hammond’s mother’s house.

Lee-Hammond remains at large. He is described as a 23-year-old black male, 5-feet-10-inches tall, 130 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair.

According to the BPD Twitter page, after taking his son, Lee-Hammond fled in a blue 1998 Toyota Corolla sedan with the license plate number, BIH7899. The vehicle’s passenger-side front wheel is all black and the passenger-side, rear window may be damaged or missing, according to the BPD Twitter page. In addition, the passenger-side brake light is not working.

There was also another adult male inside the vehicle at the time Jahvell was taken.
