Two teens were kidnapped at gunpoint from Indiana to Detroit Monday causing an Amber Alert.

A 16-year-old boy was recovered safe, while a 13-year-old girl is still missing. Police have arrested three suspects.

At Annabelle and Gilroy streets a southwest side police chase ended with officers arresting two men. After the chase the suspects tried to run but were caught. Investigators found Aaron Blackwell  bound in the backseat, but okay. 

Police are still searching for Emma Blackwell, 13, believed to be in danger. She is 5 feet, 5 inches tall, 150 pounds, black hair and brown eyes, last known to be wearing pink and white pajamas.

"An investigation is ongoing to find out what their involvement was," said FBI Special Agent John Shup. "At this point we have two suspects in custody and being questioned further."  

Three suspects in total were arrested as police continue to look for Emma, tracking leads and performing surveillance.

"We certainly think she could be in danger, so we want the public to call in as soon as possible," Shup said.

A motive is unknown but investigators have said that it may stem over a drug dispute.
