Navajo Nation Cancels Amber Alert After Two Missing Children Found Safe

Jul 9, 2021

The Navajo Nation Division of Public Safety canceled an Amber Alert early Friday morning for two children who were taken by their father in Aneth, Utah. The children, one-year-old Bailey Begay and three-month-old Braidin Begay, were found around 2 a.m. unharmed in a remote area south of Dolores, Colorado.

The kid’s father, 25-year-old Brandon Begay, was arrested without incident. 

 

Police Chief Philip Fransciso says he wants to “thank our county, state, local, and federal law enforcement partners in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico, as well as our own Navajo Division of Public Safety partners, for working together and collectively pulling together resources that lead to the successful outcome of this incident.”
