    Mesquite police officers located two children and their father from an Amber Alert issued very briefly Saturday morning.

    Police said it all started with a family disturbance at an apartment in the 4700 block of Samuell Blvd. shortly after midnight.

    Kevin Stewart, 27, took his 2-month-old son and 2-year-old stepson and left the apartment driving a white Ford Fusion according to police.

    Shortly after 5 a.m. Mesquite police said they issued an Amber Alert based on threats and Stewart's behavior during the argument with his wife, Labrena.

    A short time after police said they issued the alert, Stewart and the children were located at an Irving gas station.

    The children were found safe and police said they were reunited with their mother.

    Stewart was arrested and will be charged with endangering a child.
