ORLANDO, Fla. — Authorities say they’ve recovered a child in Florida who they say was abducted by his mother in Massachusetts two years ago.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that 40-year-old Christina Hale was arrested Tuesday at an Orange County home.
Authorities say Hale fled Webster, Massachusetts, with her now-5-year-old son after a court in that state awarded full custody to the child’s father in September 2016.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children recently received a tip about Hale, and Webster police contacted the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Florida deputies began watching a home and eventually spotted Hale.
The child reunited with his father, who lives in Massachusetts.
Hale was being held as a fugitive for an out-of-state kidnapping charge. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
