ORIGINAL | The Missouri State Highway Patrol has issued an Amber Alert out of central Missouri after a baby boy and his mother were abducted.

The Maries County Sheriff’s Office issued the alert after the 10- or 11-month-old infant, Dominque Summerford, and his mother, Alison Summerford, were abducted at gunpoint Thursday afternoon in a community northwest of Rolla, Missouri.
