The Colorado Springs Police Department and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation canceled an AMBER Alert Sunday after witnesses located the suspect child abductor, David Scott, and contacted police.

Two children that were the subject of the alert, Nicole and Heather Scott, were located in Brighton and were reported to be safe on Sunday night.

David Scott was in police custody.

The alert was issued Sunday and broadcast on local radio stations as well as electronic billboards along Interstate 70.
