A 2 year old Rhode Island boy who was reported missing was found wandering the streets of Providence on Monday, according to Johnston Police Deputy Chief Daniel Parrillo.

An Amber Alert was issued for Isaih Perez on Sunday after his mother and another woman were found dead in his home.

"A patrol man found him while on patrol just walking on the sidewalk. We don't know he was dropped off, if he was left off there, we don't have any particulars at this time," Parillo said.

After finding him, authorities took Isaiah to the hospital so he could be checked out. He appeared to be in good health.

Two men have been taken into custody in connection to Isaih's kidnapping and a double homicide, Parillo said.

Authorities believe that Malcolm Crowell, 22, fled the scene of the homicide and took Isaih with him. He was found by police in Fall River, Massachusetts following a tip sent to officials after the Amber Alert was issued.

Daniel Rodriguez was identified as the second suspect and was taken into custody by police in Providence early Sunday evening.

The child was not with either of the suspects when he was found. Authorities have yet to figure out the connection between Isaih and the suspects.

According to WPRI, the toddler lived in the house where the double homicide took pace.
