Authorities in Pennsylvania canceled an Amber Alert for two young children reportedly taken from a central Pennsylvania home, saying the children were recovered unharmed and that two suspects were taken into custody.

State police said the 3-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy were taken by two men at gunpoint after an altercation at a Lancaster home at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday. 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 Pennsylvania from New Jersey.

Authorities said a vehicle was stopped at about 8 a.m. Friday on a highway in Philadelphia, and the children were found unharmed and the suspects arrested.
