Mom and son taken by gunpoint found, Amber Alert canceled

The trio was found at the Light Rail station on Evans and Santa Fe.

ADAMS COUNTY - The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has canceled an Amber Alert issued Thursday for a young mother and her one-year-old son. 

The cancelation came at 2:40 p.m. Friday. CBI said Zahid and Samantha Adams had been located near a Denver light rail station at Evans and Santa Fe.

The alert first came out of Adams County on Thursday afternoon

Police said 1-year-old Zahid Adams and his mom, Samantha Adams, had been taken against their will by Adams' former boyfriend and father of the young boy. 



On Friday, Pueblo Police and Adams County deputies say they received 'critical' information regarding the kidnapping and tracked down the suspect, Maurico Venzor-Gonzalez and his two victims in Denver Friday afternoon. 

Denver law enforcement located the three, and Adams and her son are now safe. 

Venzor-Gonzalez ran off, according to Pueblo Police, and has not yet been located.

A woman in Pueblo spoke to 9NEWS after driving the trio back up from Pueblo to Denver earlier on Friday. No charges as she didn't know about the Amber Alert; a friend of hers saw the info on the news Friday and called the police.

Carol Archuleta let the trio stay at her place the night before. She then gave them a ride to a Denver Light Rail station.
