AMBER Alert Canceled, 1-Year-Old Found Safe

UPDATE: At 8:20 PM the AMBER alert was canceled. The 1-year-old has been found safe.

The mother of the child left the baby in the car when she went into a gas station at the location. The owner of the gas station tells CBS 58 that the mother was inside for less than 20 seconds. When the suspect or suspects stole the car the owner of the gas station and mother got into the owner's car and drove on I-43 to try and locate the car while the mother called 911.

The child was located about three hours after initially going missing.  According to the Milwaukee Police Department, a citizen called to report that the vehicle described in the Amber Alert was parked near N. 39th Street and W Hope Avenue. Officers arrived to find the child safe and sound. The child was still sitting in the car seat. The mother was reunited with her child.

Police are still searching for the suspect or suspects who stole the car and abducted the baby.
