BERNE, N.Y. (AP) — An Amber Alert has been issued in New York after a 5-year-old boy was abducted from a home in the eastern part of the state by two men wearing black ski masks.

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple says Kenneth White was being watched by the 19-year-old daughter of his legal guardians when the men entered the house, pinned the woman to the floor and took the child at about 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

They left the home in the Albany suburb of Berne in a large black pickup truck, touching off the alert.

Apple says the caretaker and two other small children were left unharmed.

He says Kenneth’s mother lives elsewhere in New York, his father in Massachusetts.

Apple says a motive isn’t clear, but it may involve a custody dispute.
