LONGMONT, Colo. (KKCO) -- An Amber Alert is in effect across the state.

Authorities say a child was abducted by his non-custodial father around 10 a.m. Saturday morning in Longmont.

The suspect forced entry into the residence, tazed and pepper-sprayed the mother, and physically removed the child who was last seen riding off on a bicycle.

It is believed he may have had a vehicle belonging to his brother and may be driving the Ford F-350, with Colorado license plates 245-FLJ.

The father had an active protection order requiring no contact with the child after a previous abduction.

The child's name is Luke Turner, and he is described as three feet tall, 28 pounds with blue eyes and blond hair. He was last seen wearing a royal blue "Lightning McQueen" shirt and blue swim shorts.
