JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Florida Department of Law Enforcement canceled a missing child alert for a Jacksonville 9-month-old that was issued early Monday morning.

According to authorities, Noah Sims was located safe. FDLE and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office did not provide any additional information.

Noah Sims was reported missing early Monday morning. Authorities said he had last been seen on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. in the area of the 8000 block of 103rd Street in Jacksonville with his father 36-year-old Corey Sims, also from Jacksonville.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said Corey left with Noah on Sunday and had refused to return the baby. Authorities say he's made "concerning statements" that have led officers to be concerned for his and Noah's well-being.

The sheriff's office reported Noah as safe just after 10 a.m. and FDLE canceled the alert.

No other information has been released.
