A missing 8 year old boy has been located safe, several hours after an Amber Alert was issued.

Earlier Tuesday evening Thunder Bay Police provided an update that they had called in resources from the Ontario Provincial Police and had established a command centre on the city's north side, as they continued their search for the boy and his father, 28 year old Christopher Poulin, who was believed to be trying to travel to Saskatchewan.

Later in the evening it was confirmed the child had been located.

This story is still developing, more updates will be provided as they become available.
