amber-alert(AP) — An Amber Alert has been canceled for a 1-year-old boy who had been reported missing from an apartment in south Lincoln.

Police say little Kharim Moreira was found safe a little after 11 a.m. Friday at a Target store about three miles east of downtown. He was with his uncle, 20-year-old Nathanial Gonzalez. Gonzalez was taken into custody, but no charges have been announced.

A tipster prompted police to check the store, where they found a vehicle matching the one that had been connected to the boy’s disappearance. An officer flattened the vehicle’s tires before other officers found the pair inside the store.

Sgt. Don Scheinost says “the child is safe and OK and probably being reunited with his mother as we speak.”
