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.

When Superstorm Sandy slammed into the Northeast nearly two years ago, hospitals found themselves dealing with surges in patients, lost power supplies and employees who couldn’t get to work _ problems that a new federal report finds they were not prepared to handle. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Service’s Inspector General Office released a study Wednesday Sept. 17, 2014 on the emergency preparedness and response during the storm at 172 hospitals in the hardest-hit areas of New York, most of Connecticut and all of New Jersey.
