SEATAC, Wash. -- A Rhode Island father has his son back in his arms tonight after an amber alert was issued for him earlier week.

Sean Britt reunited with 6-year-old Daniel at Seattle's Sea Tac airport around 10:15 Friday night.

Clearly exhausted and emotionally racked from days with no word on his son's location, Sean hugged Daniel tightly as he carried him into a nearby hotel.

Daniel's mom, Andria, is in jail facing charges after detectives located her with Daniel in Island County, WA. She has family in the area.

Andria was supposed to return Daniel to Sean on January 8. When she did not, Sean went to court to have DCYF records unsealed which prompted authorities to issue an Amber Alert.

They located the boy days later on the other side of the country after Andria's parents convinced her to surrender.

I'm just so relieved, Sean said.

Daniel, clearly exhausted himself, said very little about the last few days.

Dad and son will return to Rhode Island tomorrow where they will celebrate Daniel's 7th birthday.
