WINTER GARDEN — Authorities say a 1-year-old boy has been found safe and in good health after disappearing from his mother's home.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office reports Jayden Martinez was found with his father Sunday afternoon. No information on where they were located was released.

Investigators say they do not believe any charges will be filed against Carlos Martinez. Officials say there is ongoing custody issue.

The toddler was reported missing early Sunday after his mother discovered he had disappeared from their Winter Garden home. Police responded to the house and found there had been a forced entry into the residence.

Winter Garden is located about 15 miles west of Orlando.
