Missing 2-year-old found safe in Osceola County

Elijah West in good health, deputies say

A judge issued a court order to remove Elijah West from his parents immediately.

OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - A missing 2-year-old boy has been found safe in Osceola County, deputies said.

The Osceola County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that Elijah West was "recovered in Osceola County thanks to an anonymous tipster that saw it on the news. The child is in good health and surrendered to DCF without incident."

The Sheriff's Office said earlier this week that Elijah was likely with his parents, Sheena Maria Dubois and Anthony Deon West. Deputies said they believed West and Debois took their son after learning of a judge's order that authorities should take immediate custody of the child.

No other details about his recovery have been released.
