A 2-year-old boy who was abducted from a Virginia church and thought to be in “extreme danger” has been found safe, authorities said Monday.

Noah Gabriel Trout was safe with FBI agents and Virginia State Police Monday following his abduction a day earlier from the nursery at Riverview Baptist Church in Ripplemead, WSET reported.

“Thankfully, we’ve got some good news to tell you,” Giles County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Scott Moye told reporters. “This happened about 20 minutes ago … As of right now, they’re still trying to go through all of the leads that they have, talking to him, making sure he’s OK.”

Moye provided no little details regarding how Trout was found, but said additional information would be released at a second, “bigger” press conference at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Moye did not say where the boy was found or if investigators had anyone in custody.

An Amber Alert was issued Sunday saying an unknown adult male abducted the boy and may have been traveling in a dark-colored van or SUV. Virginia State Police later amended the alert to indicate that the boy’s “unknown abductor” was a woman.

“The child is believed to be in extreme danger and was last seen at Big Stony Creek Road, Ripplemead, VA,” the now-canceled Amber Alert read.

A Virginia State Police spokeswoman referred inquiries by The Post to the Giles County Sheriff’s Office, saying it was the lead investigative agency in the abduction case.
