NILES, Ohio -- An Amber Alert has been cancelled in Trumbull County after a child taken in a stolen vehicle in Niles, Ohio was found safe and returned to his family.

Two-year-old Michael Babuka was taken late Thursday night when a suspect stole his father's silver 2007 Chevy Impala while he was still inside.

The suspect was found driving the car around with the child inside just one town over from Niles.

He has a history of auto theft.

The suspect was intoxicated when he passed by the house where the car was parked, police said. He saw the father go into the house and proceeded to steal the car.

Babuka is said to be doing "okay" and has been reunited with his family.
