LAWTON ― Authorities in Oklahoma canceled an emergency alert late Thursday after an infant and a teen who had went missing in Lawton were found safely.

Six-month-old Carson Sellman and his 16-year-old mother, Chasity Sellman, were reported missing early Thursday. Lawton police said the two were possibly last seen with the teen's father, 50-year-old Don Sellman, traveling in a white Cadillac on Interstate 44 south of Newcastle, potentially headed to the father's residence in Tahlequah.

Cherokee County officials detained Don Sellman in Muskogee around 5:45 p.m. Thursday. The children were found shortly before 7 p.m., although authorities would not share the location.
