AMBER Alert issued for two missing boys canceled

SOUTH CAROLINA (WCSC) - The Amber Alert that was issued for two young boys has been canceled. Both boys were safely recovered in South Carolina early Saturday Morning.

The State Law Enforcement Division says 7-year-old Anthony Jordan and 8-year-old Nicholas Jordan were found safe and their father, 46-year-old John Robert Jordan, was arrested.

The alert came after New Jersey officials asked SLED to be on the lookout for Jordan and his sons.

Authorities say John Jordan removed his two children from their school in New Jersey without permission on Friday.

A well being check conducted on the children’s house led to the discovery of their mother being murdered.

Authorities had said the group may have been headed towards Greenville. There's no word on what charges Jordan may face.
