Amber Alert in Arlington, Ma... solved

OH, EIGHT! - Arlington, MA - The Arlington Advocate:

Amber Alert
Arlington raised an Amber Alert for the first time ever, because an Arlington couple disappeared with their 6-month-old son, Lucas Whalen.

Michael Whalen, 42, and Danielle Boyle, 24, refused to comply with a probate court order to hand over their son to Boyle’s aunt, and Whalen allegedly threatened to shoot himself, his child, and anyone who tried to get in their way.

Boyle and the baby arrived at the Arlington Community Safety Building within hours of the alert, because she did not have money to pay the fare of a taxi she was riding in. Whalen was arrested by a SWAT team early the next morning at a Burlington hotel. In July, Whalen pleaded guilty to parental kidnapping and threats.
