(KMOV) -- An Amber Alert for a child abduction that occurred Thursday May 30th has been canceled after the child was found in St. Louis Friday afternoon. 

Luvell Maurice Dukes, an 8-year-old black male, was found safe and taken into police custody. Duke was with his father Von Harrell. After the pair was found in St. Louis' Fifth District, Harrell was taken into custody. 

Police say Harrell showed up at the child's school with a birth certificate for him, and took him out of school. 

Reportedly Dukes and Harrell had no contact over the past eight years, and the first time they saw each other was Thursday at the school. 

Police are investigating the situation. News 4 will bring you more as the story develops.
