A child reported abducted Monday night is safe and with his mother, according to Liberty County Sheriff's Office Det. Chris Reed

Two-year-old De'Corion Williams is with his biological mother, Shayron Williams, Reed said.

Shayron Williams sent a video clip of the child traveling on a bus to an undisclosed location to investigators, the detective said.

The child's father, Cody Williams, had told authorities the 2-year-old was taken from his home on John Wells Road in Gum Branch Monday afternoon, allegedly by Mamie Basler.

Shayron Williams told the detective she took the child from the residence and got a ride from Basler to a bus station where she purchased tickets to an undisclosed location. Basler faces no charges in the case.

Shayron Williams will also not face charges, Reed said, noting both parents have custody of the child.
