A 5-year-old boy is reported safe a few hours after he was kidnapped from a home in The Dalles. The State Police said Wednesday his abductor was in custody a little more than an hour after an Amber Alert was issued for Skylar Meldin Coulcer-Jarding. The suspect was identified as 36-year-old Brian Depriest of The Dalles. State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings says Depriest knew the boy's mother and had been named in a protection order. Police say the child's mother and father were attacked with a hammer before the abduction. They were taken to a hospital with injuries considered serious but not life-threatening. Depriest was arrested without incident in Dufur, a town south of The Dalles. Associated Press
