The boy’s father, 34-year-old Tommy Lee Travis Engle (pictured right), is being held in a Kentucky jail. Patrick County Sheriff Daniel Smith says the boy’s father is accused of assaulting the mother, and he will be brought back to Virginia. The AMBER alert was issued Tuesday evening. That followed a domestic dispute between the boy’s parents.
