Barnes says the boy is in good health.

Tribal police officials say Camas was reported missing at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. He was being cared for by his grandmother and was in custody of child protective services.

Tribal police say he was taken by his parents, 26-year-old Michael Assiniboine and 29-year-old Jessica Conko.
