    Prince George's County police have cancelled an AMBER alert issued Saturday morning for 2-year-old Aaron Gamez . The Adelphi, Md. boy is now safe at home with his family.

    Just before 4 p.m. on Friday, July 2, patrol officers in Adelphi  got a report of missing child.  The mother told police that her child was abducted from in front of the Mount Vernon Metro Station in Washington, D.C. by her ex-boyfriend, Jose Alex Turcios. He is not related to the child.

    An intense search was underway for much of Saturday, with no sign of Aaron.

    Around mid-afternoon it was over.  The abductor abruptly dropped off Aaron in front of the home of a member in Hyattsville, Md.  The boy was reunited with his mother a short while later.

    While Aaron is safe, the case is not closed. Police are still searching for his suspected abductor.  They also want to figure out his motive.

    Turcios is 22 years old, 5'8" and weighs 195 pounds (pictured above on right).  He has a pony-tail and was last seen wearing a cream colored shirt and blue jeans.  The suspect has two tattoos, one on his neck that says "Lidia" and another on his forearm that says "Ice."

    Turciso may be driving a 1999 black Nissan Sentra with Maryland tag 5FJ-E91, according to police officials.

    Anyone with any information on where he is should call 911 immediately.
