A 2-year-old boy kidnapped from a church in western Virginia has been found safe, authorities say. The Giles County Sheriff's Office said Monday afternoon Noah Gabriel Trout was found in Alleghany County and is now in the hands of FBI agents and Virginia State Police tactical team members, the Bluefield Daily Telegraph, reports. Authorities say Noah was kidnapped from the nursery at the Riverview Baptist Church in Ripplemead, Giles County around noon Sunday. An Amber Alert was issued and police warned that the boy was in "extreme danger." Police released a photo Sunday of Noah apparently being led from the church by an unknown woman, Fox reports.
