INDIANAPOLIS — Police have canceled an Amber Alert for a missing 6-week-old Indianapolis baby, saying they didn’t believe it was being effective any longer.
The alert for 6-week-old Delano Wilson was issued about 9 p.m. Wednesday, some eight hours after 23-year-old Willie Wilson told police his son had been abducted by a man and woman who knocked him out in an alley near his home just west of downtown Indianapolis. The alert was canceled shortly before 7 p.m. Friday.
Police say they received numerous tips when the alert was first issued, but had received only two calls in the six hours before canceling the alert. Police on Friday searched a wooded area near where the child disappeared.
