An Iowa man accused of kidnapping his daughter and triggering an Amber Alert Friday appeared in court Monday to set his bond.

Police say Sean Shannon abducted his 11-year-old daughter, Kiley from her Shellsburg home.

Fortunately, she was found safe in Cedar Rapids about an hour later.

According to Benton County officials, Shannon is not the custodial parent and did not have the mother’s permission to take Kiley.

Authorities also say Shannon assaulted Kiley’s half-brother when he took her which led them to issue the Amber Alert Friday to find the girl.

Shannon is charged with third degree kidnapping.

During his court appearance Monday, Shannon became irritated and began swearing. Deputies escorted him out of the courtroom.

His bond has been set at $10,000.

Shannon is due back in court later this month.
