The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension canceled an Amber Alert after a missing 1-year-old child was found safe Saturday afternoon, along with the stolen vehicle he was taken in.
According to Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder, around 12:17 p.m., 1-year-old Da’merion Ni’mer White was in the back seat of a running Jeep Grand Cherokee when it was stolen from the 4200 block of Humboldt Avenue North in Minneapolis.
The child’s mother had started the car, put her child in the back seat and went inside to grab an item. When she came back out, the Jeep was gone, Elder said.
The BCA issued an Amber Alert for Da’merion shortly after.
