Father filed for custody day before Amber Alert went out for son
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Two boys were found safe after an Amber Alert was issued Tuesday night, and court records show that one boy's father filed papers for custody on Monday.
Our affiliate, WISN, says the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare recently sent 8-year-old Austyn Bennet to live with his dad. Court records show the mother, Nellie Wald, has mental health problems, but no history of violence. Austyn Bennet's father says he did not think Wald would harm the kids.
Austyn Bennet and his half-brother 4-year-old Dylan Lawrence were found late Tuesday night after an Amber Alert was put out for them.
