Bryan Quinteros, 19, was taken into police custody in Uniondale Thursday afternoon.

His son, just 6 months old, was reported missing on Wednesday, causing a brief Amber Alert before he was located, officials said.

The child was unharmed when an acquaintance brought the boy to his mother’s home, according to officials.

Quinteros is charged with criminal contempt and endangering the welfare of a child. He was expected to be held overnight, and scheduled for arraignment Friday.
