An Amber Alert has been issued for a sex offender who allegedly abducted his son from Lumberton, N.J., the same day he was set to face more charges.

According to Burlington County authorities, Terry Dusseault was to be charged this morning with multiple counts of sexual assault on three Burlington County juveniles, including two counts of 1st degree aggravated sexual assault.
