Boy returns home after Amber Alert ordeal

WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — A father and son have been reunited after an Amber Alert situation that led from one coast to the other.

Sean Britt picked up his 6-year-old son Daniel late Friday night at Seattle’s Sea Tac airport and was relieved to return home to Rhode Island.

“Hearing him in the background laughing, with his brothers and sisters, and, you know, family … it just, I Iove it.”

Daniel was the subject of an Amber Alert after his mother Andria failed to return him to Sean on January 8, instead taking off to Washington state, where she has family.

“I felt helpless. Two weeks of, just the worst possible,” Sean added. “Things going through my head… will i see my son again? Where is he?”

Andria Britt was arrested Thursday and in Island County and is being held in jail there. There’s no word yet on when she will be returned to Rhode Island to face charges.
