AMBER ALERT CANCELED | 4-year-old boy safe, suspect in custody

The alert was issued by the Erie County Sheriff's Office after a 4-year-old was abducted and in 'imminent danger.'

The AMBER Alert issued by the Erie County Sheriff's Office across the state of Ohio after a male child was abducted in Sandusky Friday afternoon, has been canceled.

Authorities say 4-year-old D'Quai Hemchak was "forcibly removed from a vehicle by Jennifer Ann Hemchack, a non-custodial parent." The suspect then sped away in her car heading east, and the young boy was believed to be in "imminent danger."

Hemchak was reported to be driving a 2015 white Hyundai Sonata with a Florida license plate number of IWUM23. Officials believe she could have be headed to that state.

The child is safe and the suspect has been placed into custody.
