Amber Alert called off, police say it was a hoax

An Amber Alert that was issued Saturday evening was called off, and police said it was a hoax.

Someone reported that a car was stolen outside of Peoria with a 13-month-old boy in the backseat, but police said the story was fabricated. A car was not stolen and a child was never missing or in danger.

Illinois state police have a suspect in custody and are investigating the false claims.

No further information was provided.
