MONROE, OH (FOX19) - The Erie County Sheriff's Office in Sandusky issued and then canceled an Amber Alert Friday evening.

The alert was issued after D'Quai Hemchak, 4, was forcibly removed from a vehicle by his non-custodial parent, Jennifer Ann Hemchak, according to WOIO in Cleveland.

The mother was found with the boy near Cincinnati and arrested. Police tracked her down on Interstate 75 southbound in Monroe, Ohio -- 30 miles north of Cincinnati.

Ohio Highway Patrol says they were alerted to the vehicle with the boy inside from a person who called police after receiving the Amber Alert on his cell phone.

The caller told police that he was following the suspected vehicle on I-75 southbound in Warren County between State Route 123 and 122, police say.

Police say troopers from Hamilton Highway Patrol Post and Lebanon Highway Patrol Post stopped the vehicle and found the boy, as well as the woman inside.

Police say the boy was unharmed and turned over to Family and Child Services to be re-united with his custodial guardians.

OHP also says that another child, a 12-year-old girl, was also found in the vehicle, in addition to another woman, Tamara M. Montalvo. The girl was brought to the Lebanon Highway Patrol Post to be re-united with her father.

Police say the adults in the vehicle were booked in the Warren County Jail.
