AMBER Alert Canceled

City of Tonawanda, NY (WBEN) -- An AMBER Alert issued overnight was cancelled near 4 am Monday when 9-year-old Samantha Cetola was recovered, in the custody of the man she was last seen with Sunday evening.

Police said Samantha's father Kevin Cetola, 46,  took 9-year-old Samantha Cetola for a walk on Father's Day, and did not return. It was believed that the two were on foot near Young Street, and may have been going toward Amherst.

Police discovered items suggesting Mr. Cetola intended to harm or kill the child. He has a history of assault, and is being charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Samantha was re-united with her mother sometime after 4 am Monday.

How are you feeling about the Sabres picking 2nd overall in the draft and likely getting Jack Eichel?
  I'm psyched!
  We lost but the consolation prize is pretty good!
  I'm hoping for a "deal"!
