May 30, 2003 (Covington-AP) -- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says the 16-month-old boy missing from a day care center in Newton County has been found safe.

GBI spokesman John Bankhead says a woman spotted the child in a car driven by 35-year-old Steven Thomas Mares in a supermarket parking lot in Rockdale County.

Sergeant Mark Mitchell says the child's mother contacted the Sheriff's Department around 5:00 AM today and said Mares, her boyfriend, was supposed to pick up the child at 4:00 Thursday and take him to her mother's house. But they never showed up.

The Sheriff's Department notified the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, which triggered the state's Levi's Call system -- the Georgia version of the national Amber Alert system.

Bankhead says the child was found within two hours of the Levi alert being issued.
