Authorities have arrested a nanny who had been caring for a missing 4-year-old Florida boy.

Jupiter police tell news outlets that Dominic Caprio disappeared Thursday afternoon and may be in danger.

Authorities tracked down his 57-year-old nanny Blanca Castro. She was booked into jail in Miami early Friday and is being held without bond. But Dominic was nowhere to be found.

The child's mother says she left Dominic with the nanny at their home north of West Palm Beach. When she returned home an hour later, the child and nanny were gone.

Law enforcement officials issued an Amber Alert early Friday which says the child may be with 60-year-old Elizabeth Caprio and 64-year-old Luis Caprio. They didn't explain the relationship.

No lawyer is listed on Castro's jail records.
