(BILLINGS) The Billings Police Department early Monday issued an Amber Alert for 18-month-old Christopher Joseph Getsdown.

Christopher is about 22 pounds and 2-feet, 6-inches tall. 

Christopher has several serious medical conditions and needs proper care and medications several times every day. Christopher was last seen around 5 p.m. Sunday with his biological father Ernest Getsdown.

Ernest is not physically or mentally capable to care for Christopher. He allegedly stole his ex-wife’s vehicle after discarding the car seat. 

Ernest and Christopher are likely traveling in a 2006 white Chevy Cobalt with a “Warrior” sticker on the back window and missing the hubcap on the back right wheel. They are possibly headed for the Hardin/ Crow Reservation area. 

If either person or the vehicle is located please contact your local law enforcement agency, call 911, or call the Billings Police Department at 657-8200. 

(UPDATE, 9 a.m.) The Montana Department of Justice has canceled the Amber Alert and says: "Child Christopher Gets Down and vehicle located safe – thank you!"

No other information has been released.
