Posted: Updated:

SEABROOK (KHOU) – A 5-year-old Seabrook boy who was the focus of an Amber Alert has been found safe.

Apollo Allen and his father were found at a Houston apartment complex in the 7500 block Wilshire Place Drive.

The Amber Alert was issued Wednesday afternoon because Tim Allen took his son Tuesday and hadn't been seen since.

Allen, 32, has a history of drug abuse, police say.

Allen also has a history of taking his son to places where drugs are being used or distributed, according to police.

Allen was taken into custody and Apollo will be returned to his mother.

The boy's mother said her ex-husband once disappeared for several days with their young daughter. The little girl also turned up safe
