SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WJW) — An Amber Alert for a 9-year-old non-verbal boy with autism has been canceled after authorities found the child’s body.

There is no word on any arrests.

According to the Amber Alert, Alejandro Ripley was abducted in Miami by two unknown black males driving an unknown light blue four-door sedan.
