An Amber Alert was issued in Omaha shortly before 5:30pm yesterday for an 8-year-old boy.
The boy, Driver Smith, was reportedly taken by his father, 33-year-old Michael Westerholm. The suspect’s car was spotted at a Fremont gas station around 7:10pm and as Fremont Police responded, the suspect fled leading to a short pursuit.
Westerholm was later taken into custody without incident and the child was found safe.
Westerholm was previously arrested on July 5th accused of trespassing at an Omaha hospital.
