JUPITER, Fla. — Authorities say they’ve found a missing 4-year-old Florida boy hours after the arrest of his nanny.

Jupiter police canceled the Amber Alter Friday afternoon for Dominic Caprio. Police weren’t immediately saying where he was or who he was with.

Police say Dominic disappeared Thursday afternoon. Authorities tracked down his nanny, 57-year-old Blanca Castro. She was being held at the Miami-Dade County jail.

The child’s mother says she left Dominic with the nanny at their home north of West Palm Beach. When she returned home an hour later, the child and nanny were gone.

Law enforcement officials issued the Amber Alert early Friday. It said the child may be with 60-year-old Elizabeth Caprio and 64-year-old Luis Caprio. They didn’t explain the relationship.

No lawyer is listed on Castro’s jail records.
