CHICAGO – An Amber Alert has been canceled after a 4-year-old boy was found in Chicago, following an abduction in Bridgeview Monday evening.

A 4-year-old boy was abducted just after 5:35 p.m. at a 7-Eleven gas station near 79th and Roberts Road.

Police said the boy’s father went into the gas station for food and discovered the vehicle was stolen when he returned.

His mother and family made an emotional plea at a press conference Monday night and said no charges will be brought, they just wanted the boy back.

After four hours, the van was located near Belle Plaine and Pulaski in the Old Irving Park neighborhood, and the boy was found safely inside. He was reunited with his family and taken to Swedish Hospital for an evaluation.

The suspect has not yet been located.

This is a developing story. Check back for details.
