About three hours later, Cincinnati TV station WCPO reported the baby had been found safe at another gas station in Fort Mitchell, Ky., about 15 minutes from where a car was stolen.

Police are studying surveillance video from the Marathon gas station in Fort Mitchell but as of Friday morning, the suspects remained at large. Florence Lt. Joseph Maier said investigators would possibly be releasing that video on Friday, along with any new information they have about the investigation.

WCPO reported that two women at that Marathon station recognized the stolen vehicle described in an AMBER Alert and reported it to police.

Sgt. Greg Rehkamp said the baby, Henry Flores, is “fine” and was checked out by emergency personnel as a precaution. He was returned to his mother and father at the gas station.
