Eddie Ahorrio, Jr., 23, and his father Eddie Ahorrio, Sr., 47, abducted the children from a house on Almanac Avenue, according to PSP. The children’s mother was staying there with her boyfriend. She and Eddie Jr. were still married, reported several other media. There was a physical altercation between Eddie Jr. and the mother’s boyfriend.

The Ahorrios fled the area in a black Nissan Altima. The license plate is Pennsylvania Registration JJG-8170. Police believe they may be travelling to Massachusetts, where the couple lived prior to coming to Lancaster.
