A 3-year-old abducted in Sacramento has been found safe after the California Highway Patrol issued an Amber Alert late Friday.

The boy was found in Hayward by the Hayward Police Department, according to the Sacramento Police Department. The CHP deactivated the Amber Alert at around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Sacramento Police said efforts are being made to reunite the boy with his family.

The incident was first reported by around 4:50 p.m. Friday, when police said the boy was taken from Sacramento.

Sacramento police officers had responded to a report of an assault on 63rd Street. Once they arrived, a man and woman were found with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

A suspect involved in the assault and shooting soon fled in the woman's vehicle -- with her toddler son inside.

The suspect was identified by police as Joshua Yago, 30, who was also later found in Hayward with the then missing boy.

Yago is in custody and will be booked on charges related to the kidnapping and shooting, according to the Sacramento Police Department.
