The Amber Alert has been canceled and Enochs is now in custody. Originally, police said the suspect was a black male but after reviewing surveillance video, new information was released and detectives said they were looking for a white male, around 20-30 years old.

WFMY News 2 is looking into the Amber Alert system and why no phone alerts went out overnight. High Point Police posted the incident on its Facebook Page and Amber Alert sent a tweet about the child and ran a crawl on television screens. However, many are questioning why didn't an alert go out on phones sooner. When an alert was issued over phones, the child had been located.

If you have any more information call the High Point Police Department at (336) 883-3224.
