Jessica Chavis (NC Amber Alert)

GREENVILLE, N.C. — Authorities in Pitt County have found a 6-day-old boy and his mother, who they believe abducted him from a relative’s home.

Kayden Chavis, and his mother, Jessica Chavis, 30, were found unharmed at approximately 8:30 p.m. Monday.

Capt. Paula Dance with the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office said investigators acted on information they received and went to a home inside the Greenville city limits Monday evening.

The sheriff’s office issued an Amber Alert Monday for Kayden and Jessica Chavis. The boy had been at the home of an unidentified relative, and the Pitt County Department of Social Services was coming to take custody of Kayden because of what Dance described as cognitive issues with Jessica Chavis.

Dance said formal charges would be filed Tuesday after talks with the district attorney’s office.
