    Police located a 1-year-old child this evening after the child was abducted this afternoon from Antioch, Antioch police said.

    At about 7:56 p.m. Stockton police received a call from a person not involved in the abduction who said the child had been dropped off at their home.

    Stockton police took custody of the boy, who was unharmed. An Amber Alert that had been issued for the boy was canceled, Antioch police said.

    The man who abducted the child is still at large. Ricardo Gomez, the boy's father, was driving a dark gray 2011 Subaru Forester with California license plate 6RTV690. Antioch police are trying to find him.

    Officers were dispatched at 3:33 p.m. to the 2600 block of Stanford Way on a report of a domestic dispute involving the boy.

    The boy's mother told officers that Gomez, 27, was visiting her and the boy after being estranged from him for most of his life, police said.

    An argument ensued and Gomez threatened to kill her and the boy, according to police.

    Anyone who has information or who witnessed the incident is being asked to call Antioch police at (925) 778-2441.
