LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

An Amber Alert out of New Mexico has been canceled after Roswell and Lubbock Police located the missing boy and arrested three people they say are connected with his abduction.

According to Roswell Police, around midnight on Monday, 6-year-old Elijah Reczek was taken at gunpoint from his father's home in Roswell by his mother, Miranda Ann Aguilar, 30. Police say Renae Denke, 31, and Roland Yoingco, 32, were also involved in the abduction, and the three may have been headed for Montana with the boy.

Roswell PD Detective Brad Bailey is credited with "pinging" Miranda Aguilar's cell phone and tracing her to the Lubbock area.

Lubbock Sergeant Jason Lewis says the FBI notified Lubbock PD that the suspects could be in Lubbock. Immediately, officers began to comb parking lots of businesses and hotels looking for a dark colored minivan with Montana plates.

"Those officers really leapt into action," Lewis said. With officers actively searching the southwest area of Lubbock, they quickly found the minivan in the parking lot near a string of hotels including the Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn and Courtyard Lubbock off of South Loop 289 between Quaker and Indiana.

"When they saw the officers coming, they decided they would try to take off. What they didn't know is there was only a one-way exit and by the time they went around the back of the hotels our officers were able to surround the vehicle," Lewis said.

Lewis says they were able to arrest the three suspects and take Elijah safely to the Lubbock Police Department.

According to Roswell PD, Aguilar faces charges of aggravated burglary, conspiracy, assault against a household member with intent to commit a violent felony and custodial interference. Her bond is set at $100,000.

Yoingco faces similar charges of aggravated burglary and aggravated assault to commit a violent felony with a bond at $100,000. Denke faces charges of aggravated burglary, aggravated battery, conspiracy and false imprisonment. Her bond is set at $200,000.

All three will be taken back to New Mexico in the near future.
