An Amherst man is in custody this morning following an overnight Amber Alert.

Police say the alert was issued after Kevin Cetola failed to return his nine-year-old daughter Samantha to her mother before their appointed time.

Several police agencies, including a  police helicopter, were active during the search. Authorities say they were also able to track Cetola's cell phone.

The girl and her father were located at a Colvin Boulevard gas station after three this morning.
