OAKLAND, Calif. (KRCA, MyNews4.com, & KRNV) -- 
The California Highway Patrol has canceled the Amber Alert related to an alleged carjacking and kidnapping in Oakland. All parties were located safe on Wednesday.

California Highway Patrol Officers made the announcement on their official Twitter account.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland police have identified a person of interest in the apparent carjacking and kidnapping of an elderly man and a teenage girl outside a supermarket.

Officer Johnna Watson said at a news conference on Wednesday that police are looking for 54-year-old Roy McCamey of Oakland. McCamey allegedly matches the description of a man who stole items inside the Safeway prior to Tuesday's carjacking, when police say a man armed with a knife took over a red four-door sedan with an elderly man and 13-year-old girl inside.

The incident prompted a statewide Amber Alert. The vehicle has a California license plate with the number 6JFM648.

Police say though no missing person's reports have been filed, they are still treating the case as a kidnapping until they have reason to believe otherwise.
