Baby unharmed after Town of Lockport abduction; search for father continues

Deputies said the child was unlawfully taken by her father, Anthones Mullen.

LOCKPORT, N.Y. — The search for a 10-month-old baby girl prompted an Amber Alert on Saturday.

The child, Royalty Mullen was allegedly taken by her father, 37-year-old Anthones Mullen, unlawfully sometime before 8 a.m. Saturday, which led to the search and the Amber Alert.

The baby was taken from Sweetwood Drive in the Town of Lockport, according to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's deputies located Anthones Mullen's empty vehicle in the Woodlands Manufactured Home Community in the Town of Lockport. From there, crews began to search the immediate area for Mullen and the baby.

Eventually, the Buffalo Police Department said the unharmed infant was brought to them by "a relative of the suspect."

After that, the mother was notified and reunited with Royalty. The search continues for Anthones Mullen, however, who is wanted by police in connection to Saturday's events.

Anyone with any information Anthones Mullen's whereabouts is asked to contact Investigator Keith Hetrick at (716) 438-3335, or the Niagara County Sheriff's Office Communications Center at (716) 438-3393.
