Police issued an Amber Alert for the children after they were taken in a black Nissan Altima with Pennsylvania license plates JJG-8170.

There was concern the men were headed for Massachusetts because Eddie Ahorrio, Sr. recently lived in Worcester.

The car was stopped Friday morning where Route 1 meets the Schuylkill Expressway near City Line Avenue in Philadelphia.
