NEW JERSEY BOY LOCATED VIA AMBER ALERT (Missing 4 year old was tracked within 4 hours)
A 4 year old boy who was reported abducted was found safe Friday morning after state troopers aided by the Amber Alert system pulled over a car on the New Jersey Turnpike. Four hours after the system was activated and 20 hours after the boy last had been seen by his family, the care was stopped near Exit 7 in Burlington County about 11 am. The boy, Eric David Hernandez, was found with Felicitos Meneses-Zehuancatzi, and her husband, Juan Mena Rojas, the couple that was babysitting the boy at his family's Lakewood home. They said they were taking the boy to see a friend who had given birth at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch but no area hospital had records of anyone by the friend's name. At least two drivers called authorities to report seeing the car traveling north on the New Jersey Turnpike a little after 10:30 am. One of the drivers tailed the Mitsubishi from Cherry Hill until state police could catch it near Bordentown. Cherry Hill is more than 60 miles from Long Branch, where the couple said they were going to a hospital.
