Amber Alert issued for two

The Watauga County Sheriff's Office and the N.C. Department of Crime Control and Public Safety issued an Amber Alert yesterday after authorities said that two young children were abducted from a foster home at gunpoint by their biological parents.

The two children had been living with a Watauga County foster family after Child Protective Services removed them from the care of their biological parents, James Lee Canter, 29, and Alisha Ann Chambers, 18, several months ago.

The couple were charged with operating a meth-amphetamine lab, and deputies had been trying to find Canter to serve an arrest warrant on him since the lab was found.

Early yesterday morning, Canter showed up at the foster home along with Chambers, pointed a gun at the foster mother and stated simply that the couple were taking their kids, Townsend said.
