BOISE — The Ada County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that 17-year-old Lee Roy Center has been found safe in a Boise home with no apparent injuries.

Deputies activated an Amber Alert for Center on Wednesday night after they feared he may have been endangered by his father.

Officials say Lee’s father, 44-year-old Verdell R. Daniel, who also goes by the name of Ric Daniel, committed aggravated battery, causing serious bodily injury to Lee.

The sheriff’s office says Daniel also prevented Center from getting medical treatment after he injured the boy, hid him for two days, and cut off communication to others.

Ada County issued a court order for Center to be removed from Daniel’s custody on Wednesday. Via
