EDMONTON --  ***UP-DATE as of 5:30-AM

The Edmonton boy at the centre of an Amber Alert that spanned two Alberta cities has been found safe.

Edmonton police tweeted early Saturday that the eight-year-old was found unharmed in the Calgary area at 5:30 a.m.

Police said earlier they believed the boy was abducted from school by his mother on Friday afternoon, and that he was believed to be in danger.

After leaving Edmonton, the pair were believed to be travelling in the Calgary area, where they were eventually spotted by an off-duty Calgary police officer.  The boy's father tweeted Saturday morning that he was on his way to pickup his son  in Okotoks.

Police would like to thank the public for sharing information on the alert.
