An Amber Alert that was issued in Saskatchewan for a two-year-old boy has ended after the child was found unharmed, police say.

RCMP say in a news release that the child was found safe at approximately 6 p.m. local time Sunday.

A woman who was also noted in the alert was arrested at the same time without incident.

Police in Regina had said earlier they were dispatched to a home shortly before 4:30 a.m. Sunday following a report a woman had shown up and was believed to be trying to take her biological son, from whom police said she didn't have custody.

Police said the pair were gone by the time officers arrived, and investigators later learned the woman arrived a short time later at Regina General Hospital with the child, but left on foot.

The RCMP news release says both the boy and the woman were found in Regina.
