Amber Alert Canceled, Mom, Son Found Safe

20-month-old Aedan Michael Mauger and 24-year-old Jessica Mauger.

An Amber Alert has been canceled after police say a mother and her son were found unharmed.

Cumru Township Police say they received a call on Tuesday around 4 p.m. reporting that 24-year-old Jessica Mauger and her son, 20-month-old Aedan Michael Mauger, were endangered and missing from their home on the 1000 block of Bedford Avenue in Shillington, Berks County, Pa.

Jessica Mauger's parents told police that the woman had left her home with her son Tuesday morning and had not returned. The parents claimed the note indicated that she was planning to harm herself.

Pennsylvania State Police also reported that Mauger took two bottles of pills as well as a bottle of rum with her.

An Amber Alert was issued as police searched for Mauger and her child.

Around 7:45 p.m., Cumru Township Police and Lancaster City Police were able to find Jessica and her son in Lancaster City. They were both unharmed and the Amber Alert was canceled.

Officials initially told NBC10 that Mauger did not have custody of her child. However, state police later refuted that report after Mauger and her son were found.

Police have not yet revealed whether any charges will be filed.
