An Amber Alert has been canceled and the two missing children have been found safe.
Police say a brother and sister were taken from their Pennsylvania home at gunpoint Thursday.
Police say Erielys Ahorrio, 3, and John, 4, were abducted from their home in Lancaster City around 7:30 PM. They were taken at gunpoint by two Hispanic males and were known to the family.
One of the suspects is 23 year old Eddie Ahorrio, Jr. He is the ex-boyfriend of the children's mother. Ahorrio was his father, Eddie Sr.
Investigators say Eddie Jr. was upset with the children's mother who broke up with him last week. He had threatened to take the kids in the past.
The men were pulled over in Pennsylvania shortly after the Amber Alert was issued in Massachusetts Friday morning. The children were found safe in the vehicle and the men are currently in custody.
