LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in Pennsylvania have canceled an Amber Alert for two young children reportedly taken from a central Pennsylvania home.

State police earlier said 3-year-old Erielys Ahorrio and 4-year-old John Ahorrio were taken at gunpoint from a Lancaster home by two men at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday following an altercation.

Police said the abductors fled in a black vehicle and could be traveling to Massachusetts but said later that the vehicle was believed to be returning to the commonwealth from New Jersey.
