Amber Alert issued briefly in Massachusetts for child in car stolen from Chicopee

CHICOPEE – A 3-year-old boy was found safe after Massachusetts State Police briefly issued an Amber Alert for a stolen car in Chicopee Friday morning.

The boy was found at a hotel in Windsor, Connecticut, and the Amber Alert was deactivated. The suspect was taken into custody at Anytime Fitness in Windsor.

State police said the suspect apparently dropped the boy off at the Rodeway Inn and hotel employees called police.

The red 2021 Toyota Camry was stolen at 8:50 a.m. with the boy inside, state police said. Police said shortly after 10:30 a.m. the car was found at a Stop & Shop in Windsor.

What is an Amber Alert?

The Amber Alert system is named Amber Hagermana 9-year-old Texas girl who was kidnapped and murdered in 1996. The system uses the emergency alert system to broadcast information that could be used to help find the abducted children.

The Massachusetts State Police have three requirements that must be met before an Amber Alert is issued: the abducted child must be 17 years of age or younger, the child must be in danger of serious injury or dead, and police must have enough information to share via an Amber Alert that would help find the child.
