St Ignatius missing child
MISSOULA, Mont. -

The state Justice Department says a 2-year-old St. Ignatius boy has been found after authorities issued a missing and endangered child alert for him.
    
Justice Department spokesman John Barnes says the Flathead Tribal Police Department notified his agency Thursday that Camas Assiniboine (KAM'as ass-in-uh-BOYNE') was turned over to law-enforcement officers.
    
Barnes says the boy is in good health.
    
Tribal police officials say Camas was reported missing at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. He was being cared for by his grandmother and was in custody of child protective services.
    
Tribal police say he was taken by his parents, 26-year-old Michael Assiniboine and 29-year-old Jessica Conko.
    
Barnes says no arrests have been made as of Thursday afternoon and he had no further details about how or where Camas was found.
