Cell Phone Leads Cops to Amber Alert Suspect

CONWAY, Ark.-  A father is behind bars after police say he kidnapped his 18-month-old son at knifepoint Tuesday morning.   

Conway Police say Yimi Navaro-Cruz took the child and drove off. That sparked a search starting in Conway, then spanning several counties.

Police issued an Amber Alert just before noon. They were also able to ping Navaro-Cruz's phone, which tracked him to an area along Interstate 30 near Arkadelphia. Police there were able to track him down and get him to surrender. 

The child was found unharmed and was returned to his mother. Police brought Navaro-Cruz back to Conway and took him to jail. He is likely facing kidnapping charges.
