GRANT COUNTY, Wash. - An Amber Alert for a 9-month-old girl was canceled Tuesday night after police found the girl and her father - accused of taking her - less than a block away from their home.

The incident started after 18-year-old Destiny Powell called police Tuesday to tell them she had been beaten by her boyfriend 18-year-old Kevin Vielle on Monday.

Powell, who was waiting at a Moses Lake domestic violence safe house, was reported by deputies to have two black eyes and multiple bruises on her arms.

The fight that left Powell injured apparently started after Vielle accused her of trying to poison him and their 9-month-old daughter Harmony Vielle. During the fight, Powell says Vielle tried to force her to drink "Pine-Sol" and that if she didn't he would force their daughter to drink the cleaning liquid.

Powell told deputies that after the fight, Vielle then took her to a friend's house before taking off with the couple's daughter, saying he would be back the next morning.

The Amber Alert was issued for Harmony after Powell's mother called police and told them she had received a call from Vielle asking why "the cops and Destiny were outside his house."

Powell's mother told him she had no idea what was going on and that's when he said, "I'm dead and Harmony's dead and you will not ever see us again." 

Multiple agencies were called in to help find Vielle and his daughter, including the FBI in the chance that Vielle would try and head to Montana to a family member's house on the Blackfoot Indian Reservation in East Glacier.

Shortly after the Amber Alert was issued, a deputy found the car that Vielle was thought to be traveling in parked at an elementary school. Vielle and Harmony were not inside.

When authorities spoke with Vielle's friends, they said they had talked to him on the phone and encouraged him to at least give up the child to law enforcement.  

After Vielle's mother got off work, she was able to take detectives to where she thought her son and Harmony might be. When police arrived there - to an address on Mitchell - they found Vielle and Harmony.

Vielle was arrested and Harmony was taken by Child Protective Services.

    OMAK, Wash. - I can picture the Austin Powers bit now.  The people of Omak looking up at the sky and seeing a giant (Fill in the blank innuendo here) just like in 1999's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. If you're unfamiliar, I'll save you a Google search.  A simple, yet effectively funny joke.  Except the U.S. Navy doesn't see humor in the real-life version at all.
