The New York State Amber Alert has been activated for a baby abduction that occurred in Jericho

The Nassau County Police Department has canceled an Amber Alert for a mother described as suicidal who took off with her own children. New York State Police tweeted that both children were recovered safely, but no other details were immediately released.

Police said 2-month-old Promise Lee and 2-year-old Love Lee were taken near 17th Street in Jericho around 6:45 a.m.

Authorities say it happened following a fight between the mother, 31-year-old Sun Shin, and their father inside their home. The mother was located hours later, and no charges are expected.

Authorities had issued a silver alert for her on Sunday, saying she was suicidal and threatened to take her own life and her children's lives.

It is unclear where they were found.
