A man who caused one of Iowa’s first Amber Alerts will serve two years in prison. It was last April 23 when Joshua Michael Moore told his girlfriend he was taking her little boy to the mall that Thursday evening. On Friday they still hadn’t returned to her home in Iowa City so she called police. The Amber Alert went out, within a short time a motorist who’d heard it spotted Moore’s car and Moore told police they’d slept in the car, in a parking lot on Iowa City’s south side. At the time Moore was on parole for drug charges in Polk County. Charged with kidnapping, he pleaded guilty this week to child endangerment and will serve his two-year sentence concurrently with the parole violation.
