UPDATE: This story has been updated after the endangered person advisory was canceled Monday morning.

COLUMBIA — A missing toddler from Jefferson City was found unharmed in Atlanta, according to a news release from the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The endangered person advisory issued Sunday for 23-month-old Jack M. Randolph by the Jefferson City Police Department was canceled Monday morning. 

Kerry Randolph, the child's father, and Lucas Diehl were listed as possible suspects or associates in the boy's disappearance. 

Randolph texted the toddler's mother and asked if he and a friend could take the child to Atlanta. Randolph was possibly under the influence of alcohol and may have a mental disorder, according to the police report.
