LUMBERTON, N.J. (AP/1010 WINS) — Authorities in New Jersey found a registered sex offender and his 8-year-old son who were the focus of an AMBER Alert.

Burlington County authorities say Terry Dusseault and his son were at a Medford supermarket. Neither was harmed.

Dusseault’s brother became worried about his mental state after he disappeared with his son, Terry Jr., from their Lumberton home on Tuesday. The child’s mother is deceased.

Police went to the home to arrest the 38-year-old on child sexual assault and endangerment charges involving three juveniles, but not his son.

Dusseault is on North Carolina’s sex offender registry after he was placed on probation for a third-degree child exploitation charge in 2007.

An Amber Alert was in effect for a young boy in New Jersey.
