UPDATE: The Travis County Sheriff's Office says 4-year-old Marsdan Harp has been found safe and returned to his father.

ORIGINAL STORY: A regional Amber Alert has been issued for 4-year-old Marsdan Ellis Harp, who was abducted from a southwest Travis County home by his mother, the sheriff's office said.

In an alert Thursday night, the Travis County Sheriff's Office said Celina Jeanne Harp, 38, abducted Marsdan from a home on Dawning Court at 2 p.m. Thursday. The mother was last seen traveling south on MoPac Expressway at FM 2244 in a dark green 2010 Ford Fusion with Texas license plate number LGV 3638. 

Marsdan, who is 3-foot-9 and weighs 42 pounds, was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and black shorts, deputies said. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

The sheriff's office said a regional Amber Alert, which does not activate alerts on cellphones or road signs, is issued when it's believed the child and their abductor are still in the area.
