CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities are looking for a man suspected of abducting an infant in southern Wyoming.

Cheyenne police say 26-year-old Mijito Johnson is thought to have taken 1-year-old Gregory Marks from a location in the northern part of the city Thursday afternoon. Johnson is the boy's non-custodial father.

An Amber Alert has been issued, and police are on the lookout for a 2004 silver Ford Expedition with a temporary plate and a broken rear passenger side window. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation says it's possible the man is traveling through the state.
