PATRICK COUNTY, VA -- The Patrick County Sheriff's Office is looking for a missing child who's believed to be with his father.

An Amber Alert has been issued for 3-year-old, Tommy Lee Able Engle. Investigators believe the child's father, Tommy Lee Travis Engle could be traveling to North Carolina or Kentucky.

The search for both of them started on Friday after deputies received a domestic disturbance call at Engle's house. Deputies say by the time they arrived Engle had already left with his son.

The Patrick County Sheriff's Office obtained warrants for Engle for Malicious Wounding and Strangulation against the child's mother. Investigators say Engle could be in possession of an AK 47 type assault rifle and body armor. They say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Engle and his son were last seen traveling in a 2001 Dodge Neon, blue in color with license plate number WNZ 9169. The boy has blonde hair, blue eyes, and weighs 35 pounds. The boy's father is 34-years-old, has brown hair, brown eyes, 6'0'' tall and weighs 200 pounds.

If you have any information call 911 or your local law enforcement agency.
