    An Amber Alert has been canceled for a 16-year-old boy police feared was in imminent danger overnight.

    Aron Lavon Jones was last seen at about 5 p.m. Tuesday walking away from his home along the 7900 block of Lost Mirage Drive. Jones was with two other males at the time.

    Mitchell Warren with the Dallas Police Department sent the following statement on the end of the Amber Alert:

    "Aron Lavon Jones returned home earlier this morning uninjured. He is currently on his way to police headquarters to be interviewed by detectives. There were no arrest made thus far. The Amber Alert has been cancelled."

    Police said they had reason to believe Jones was a kidnapping victim and was in imminent danger overnight, though they didn't disclose what led them to that conclusion.

    Jones is black and stands about 5 feet 7 inches tall.  He weighs approximately 160 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.  He was last seen wearing khaki pants, a black Polo shirt and blue and white sneakers.

    Investigators believe Jones was taken by 24-year-old Tarvarus Stuckey (pictured below). They may have been traveling in a 2005 gold Land Rover with Texas license plate DN2B787.

    Stuckey does have a criminal record that includes aggravated robbery.
