Father arrested following Amber Alert


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.
