Woman, infant son abducted at gunpoint found safe after search

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Colorado police have located a woman and her one-year-old son who authorities say were taken at gunpoint by her ex-boyfriend.

Adams County Sheriff Senior Deputy Amanda Overton says police believe 22-year-old Mauricio Venzor-Gonzalez used a gun to force 26-year-old Samantha Adams and her one-year-old son, Zahid, from their Commerce City home into a car around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday. CBS Denver reports Venzor-Gonzalez is the child's father.

Police found the gray Honda in Pueblo late Thursday afternoon but it was empty. 

Friday, Venzor-Gonzalez apparently dropped the woman and child off in Denver. Police found the two near a light rail station. Both were unharmed, police say. 

The search for the suspect continues.
