A 4-year-old Bixby boy was found about an hour after a statewide Amber Alert was issued Monday night.

Justice Poindexter was allegedly taken by his father's roommate.

Justice's father told News On 6 he got off work Monday afternoon and found his home ransacked and his child missing. It triggered an all-out search and an Amber Alert was issued around 8 p.m.

About an hour later, police received a call that the boy and the suspect, 31-year-old Natasha Hoch, were at the Kum & Go at 101st and Riverside. There, they found Justice safe with Hoch, who was taken into custody by the Jenks Police Department.

At the time, police had no information about a possible motive, but they did say the boy's father had left him in Hoch's care, while he was at work.

Court records show Hoch was convicted in 2009 of driving under the influence of drugs.

Justice's father said he was grateful to everyone who worked to quickly locate his son.
