Pennsylvania State Police issued the Amber Alert overnight for two children allegedly abducted at gunpoint from Lancaster City by two men, and their vehicle's last known location was in New Jersey.

Police say 3-year-old Erielys Ahorrio and 4-year-old John Ahorrio were taken from a residence on Almanac Avenue in Lancaster City.

According to the Lancaster City Police Department, the two suspects are Eddie Ahorrio Jr., 23, and Eddie Ahorrio Sr., 47, both Hispanic males.

Eddie Jr. is believed to be the father of Erielys and John.

Erielys was described as 24-inches tall, weighing 29 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, and she was last seen wearing a pink jacket. John is 3-feet tall and weighs 37 pounds.

Officials say the gunpoint abduction occurred following an altercation, and the men fled with the kids in a black, 1994 Nissan Altima bearing Pennsylvania registration JJG-8170. It is believed they may be traveling to Massachusetts.

Police released a photo of the children and one of Eddie Ahorrio Jr., but did not immediately have one of the elder suspect.

Around 6:30 a.m., the alert was rebroadcast in New Jersey. That alert said the vehicle's "last known location was traveling northbound near State Highway 55 and Route 47 in Vineland" and reiterates that they may be heading to the Massachusetts area.
