Police have located three children who were abducted on Friday morning in Oklahoma, an incident which prompted police to issue a now-canceled amber alert.

The children, ages 8, 10, and 10 months old, had last been seen around 7.30am local time, on Daisy Road, in McAlester, Oklahoma, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, before the alert went out.

Police initially said the incident was a “non-custodial abduction,” with Moises Aranda, 33, and Alexandria Aranda, 36, initially identified as suspects, before canceling the alert because the “children have been located and are safe.”

Both parents are now in police custody, KFSM reports.

The Independent has contacted the Pittsburgh County Sheriff’s Office, which requested the alert, for more information.

Those with additional information about the incident are encouraged to call the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office at 918-423-5858.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated with more information.
