CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Police have canceled an Amber Alert that was issued after two children went missing out of Charlotte on Monday.

Both children were reported to be safely found by 11 a.m., Tuesday. Police said both children were safe and unharmed and with relatives.

Edward Silk Garner Sr., is the suspect police named. He is described as a 35-year-old black, male, six feet one inches tall. He has brown, short cut hair, brown eyes and a beard with a goatee. Police are searching for him.

Garner’s son went to police headquarters Tuesday after seeing his photo released by police, officials said.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police originally tweeted about a homicide after a woman was found dead at a crime scene and then followed up with information on the abduction but it is not clear at this time exactly what the connection is.

There is no further information available at this time.
