Another dramatic Amber Alert resulted in the successful rescue of a 2-year-old boy Sunday who had vanished after an apparent double homicide. 

Isaiah Perez was found wandering the streets of Providence, R.I., police said. The boy had been missing since the early Sunday discovery of two bodies in Johnston, R.I.

It's not clear what the unidentified victims' relationship to Isaiah had been. In an Amber Alert, police said they suspected an abductor had fled the home with the child.

Malcolm W. Crowell, 22, of Providence, had initially been identified in the Amber Alert as the possible abductor. He was reportedly arrested in Fall River, Mass.

Police then also arrested Daniel Rodriguez, 28, in Providence. A patrol officer later found the boy wandering alone nearby, police said.

Isaiah was taken to a hospital and seemed to be doing OK, officials said.

The rescue came on the heels of an Amber Alert rescue in the West on Saturday. Hannah Anderson, 16, of California was recovered in Idaho after her suspected abductor was shot dead by officers in the wilderness.
