The alert is lifted.
The kidnapping alert plan, triggered this Saturday morning by the authorities after the kidnapping the day before by his father of a little boy of eight years in Lannion (Côtes-d'Armor), has ended.
"Dewi, 8-year-old boy, European type, suffering from deafness" was found unharmed, while he had been kidnapped around 11:15 on Friday by his father, according to the prosecution.
“At around 3 pm, they were recovered in the town of Plouaret safe and sound,” said Bertrand Leclerc, Saint-Brieuc prosecutor.
A kidnapping alert was issued on Saturday morning and significant means, including air, had been put in place to find the boy and his father, originally from the Rennes region.
26th “Kidnapping alert” since 2006
The “Abduction Alert” plan is a massive and immediate alert system deployed to help search for a suspected kidnapped child.
It is largely inspired by the "Amber Alert" plan, created in Texas in 1996, after the kidnapping and murder of little Amber Hagerman.
Adopted in France in February 2006, it consists of mobilizing the population in the search for the child and his abductor.
Saturday's alert is the 26th.
The last dates back to last April for the kidnapping of little Mia.
The little girl, who was entrusted to her grandmother, had been kidnapped in the Vosges by three men at the initiative of her mother.
The child and his mother were found five days later in a squat in Switzerland, safe and sound.
It is only activated if several criteria are met: there must be a proven kidnapping and not a simple disappearance, the victim must be a minor, his physical integrity or his life must be in danger and elements of information must make it possible to locate him. .
