The mother gave Martin permission to take the car and 3-year-old Brooks to a nearby store with the expectation that they would return shortly, police said.

Martin, 3-year-old Brooks, and the vehicle did not return.

Saturday afternoon, an AMBER alert was issued for the missing child.

Soon after, someone saw the AMBER Alert broadcast and took action by calling the Oakland Police Department when they spotted the associated vehicle on the road, according to Oakland PD.

From there, officers stopped the car in the 200 block of Santa Clara Avenue in Oakland, where they safely located 3-year-old Brooks and Tammy Martin inside.

The little boy was then reunited with his mother.
