UPPER MERION TOWNSHIP -- A baby has been found safe after being kidnapped from the King of Prussia Mall.

A suspect is reportedly in police custody and charges are pending.

Police were searching for a woman accused of kidnapping the 7-week-old baby boy.

Officers responded to the food court area of the mall around 5:35 p.m. Thursday for a report of an abduction.

In a press conference Thursday night, Upper Merion Township police identified the infant boy as Ahsir Simmons. Shortly after the press conference, an Amber Alert was issued.
