ARDMORE, Oklahoma - NOTE: News 9 has removed the photo and name of the child who was the subject of an Amber Alert Saturday, November 8, because it is our policy not to name the victims of sex crimes.


An Ardmore family is anxiously awaiting the return of a kidnapped little girl, and police have a suspect in custody following an Amber Alert. The child has been at a medical facility and is expected to return to her loved ones soon. 

The Ardmore Police Department canceled the Amber Alert for the 7-year-old after a tip took them to her alleged kidnapper's home. "The juvenile has been located and is in our custody," the police department announced at 9:50 a.m. Sunday.

Fount Duston, 34, has been arrested on complaints of kidnapping and first degree rape, according to Ardmore Police Captain Eric Hamblin.

Police received an anonymous tip Sunday morning and found the girl and her suspected kidnapper at his home in Marietta. Duston is in custody and is being interviewed by the Ardmore police, authorities say.

There is no word on the child's condition.

The alert was issued Saturday evening after the child was seen being pulled into a silver PT Cruiser by a male suspect.
