The Battle Ground Police Department says a 4-year-old boy who was taken by a relative has been found safe.

Police said 4-year-old Aziel Belza was taken from his Battle Ground home by an estranged family relative, Lyubob Bilyk, at about 2 p.m. Wednesday. The boy was sitting in an unattended car when Bilyk took the vehicle without permission.

According to police, Bilyk did not have authority or permission from the boy's mother to take him or the car from the home.

The vehicle was found on Interstate 5 near milepost 244 in Marion County by an Oregon State Police - Salem Sergeant and a Linn County Deputy.

Law enforcement were able to safely remove the child from the vehicle and Bilyk was taken into custody without incident.

Police said Belza has been reunited with his family.

The investigation is ongoing.
