LANCASTER, Pa. (WPRI) — Pennsylvania State Police have canceled an Amber Alert for two children Friday morning.

Police said 3-year-old Erielys Ahorrio and 4-year-old John Ahorrio were found safe in New Jersey, just outside Philadelphia.

The two were taken from their Lancaster City home at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

According to police, the children were abducted at gunpoint by their father, Eddie Ahorrio Jr., 23, and grandfather, Eddie Ahorrio Sr., 47, following an altercation at the home.

Ahorrio Jr. was taken into custody after his black 1994 Nissan Altima was spotted and stopped by police.
