UPDATE: The Amber Alert has been canceled.
INITIAL STORY: An Amber Alert has been issued tonight for Venjamin Seth Wright, a 6-year-old Marysville boy who was last seen just after noon at 1350 Cedar Avenue.
According to the alert:
Venjamin is autistic, and has the mental capacity of an 18-month-old.
His mother, Shannan Christine Guest, did not allow Child Protective Services into her home when they arrived to do a welfare check on the boy, and she told them she would “flee the area if things did not go her way,” the alert says.
When officials returned with a court order of removal, Guest had fled the area with boyfriend Gary Howard Cooper in a white 2012 Ford Focus.
They are possibly on their way to Los Angeles, Calif.
Venjamin was last seen wearing a yellow t-shirt and black pants and shoes.
He is white, and has brown hair and brown eyes.
His mother is a white 37-year-old who is five foot four and 140 pounds.
Her boyfriend is 32-years-old, six foot four and 150 pounds. He is white with brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about Venjamin’s whereabouts should call 911.
