Cristobal Lopez, the 2-year-old Georgetown boy that police said was abducted by his own mother in late July, was found safe Friday in Pasadena, California, Georgetown Police said.

Police are still looking for Angelina Lopez, the mother who was charged with child abuse on June 5 and later abducted Cristobal on July 25.

Georgetown Police said the investigation – which involved 10 agencies – revealed that Cristobal had been transported from Delaware to California. Friday, at the request of Georgetown Police, Pasadena Police Department detectives executed a search warrant at a residence on the 600 block of Los Robles Ave. in Pasadena. Cristobal was inside the residence.

Police did not say whose residence he was in or who else was there when the warrant was executed.

Angelina Lopez currently has an active warrant for felony breach of release by the Georgetown Police Department.

Cristobal's cousin was caring for him in the first block of S. Front Street in Georgetown on July 25 when Angelina Lopez said she was going to come stay with the cousin and her son.

At about 5 a.m. Sunday, the cousin realized Angelina had left with Cristobal, police said.

An Amber Alert was issued on July 27.

Angelina has an active court order mandating that Cristobal live with Angelina's cousin. Angelina is also not permitted to have unsupervised visits with Cristobal.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Angelina Lopez should call 911 immediately, police said. Information and inquiries should be referred to Detective Joey Melvin with the Georgetown Police Department at 302-856-6613.
