(Columbus-AP) -- A two-year-old Columbus boy who's mother said he was kidnapped by carjackers has been found safe, and police say his disappearance was not a random kidnapping.

His mother says he was taken from her when two men carjacked her Wednesday night. The car was found, but the child wasn't in it. He was found Thursday afternoon in a public park.

Authorities say the boy was with his mother Wednesday night when two men approached them as they got out of a black Buick, and pointed a gun at the mother, Lekendra Trice.

 The two drove off with the boy still in the car. Police found the car a short time later, but it was empty. The FBI was been called in to help.
