Police are reporting the mother of a missing 2-year-old boy turned herself in on Thursday and the child is safe.

The child was reported missing last week. His mother lost custody of him and reportedly took the child on Feb. 6.

"Denver Police contacted Commerce City Police and the child was found in good health and is being reunited with his father," police wrote in a release. "Ms. Watson is in custody and will be facing criminal charges. The nature of those charges are being evaluated by detectives and the Adams County District Attorney’s Office. The members of the Commerce City Police Department are thankful to the public and media for their assistance in locating Danny Fish Jr. No further information is available at this time."

Police in Colorado hope the public can help them track down a missing 2-year-old boy.

On Feb. 6, the Commerce City Police Department learned a woman took her child after having her parental rights removed. As of Tuesday, police were still actively searching for the child, Danny Fish Jr. Pictures of Danny and his mother, 29-year-old Valerie Watson, are at the top of this article.

Police believe Watson could be along the East Colfax corridor. Colfax runs through the heart of Denver and out east past Aurora.
