(WHO) Police say Matthew Golden was traveling east on Interstate 80, when he heard an Amber alert for two missing children from Toronto, Iowa.

The car described in the Amber Alert was a silver sedan. Despite this description, Golden spotted a white panel van and decided that he had found the vehicle authorities were searching for.
