An Amber Alert was issued Saturday for the toddler after the child’s father provided information to investigators while being deployed at sea on a U.S. Navy ship.
Singleton had been driving a white 2021 Chevrolet Silverado U-Haul 2 door pickup truck with Arizona registration AL-35574, but investigators said the keys to that vehicle were left in the dropbox of a U-Haul outlet in Georgia.
Clayton police detectives are currently on their way to Georgia, according to a Facebook post.
