AZ - Boy, 9 mos, Phoenix, 31 Aug 1996
This 11 year-old kidnapping case is now at an end; a 9 month old boy was kidnapped by the boyfriend of a woman...he was NOT the child's biological father. 11 years later, both the man and the child have been recovered!
Odd bond amount however. I would think that bail would be denied considering this dude has been hiding out for 11 years.

Thanks for this link, Believe. Although uplifting Lord knows what that poor kid is going to go through. Still, it's good to know he's alive.

He was living with his parents? Didn't they find it fishy that he just all the sudden shows up with a baby? That poor child!

This must be such a shock and relief for his mom. Prayers for this young man...this is going to be so hard on him.Happy New Years

I understand your point, Filly, but I think we are expressing relief that he is alive and not another dead child from someone's idea of revenge. He will have a very difficult time negotiating what was his reality vs what really is his reality...

Wow! To think that this child was missing for 11 years and found within 10-20 miles of where he originally went missing!

There was a federal warrant out for this guy, and it took them 11 years to find him at his parents' house?
I'm glad the boy is alive though. I hope he will be okay.

I have been thinking about being 12 and hating my life, then all of sudden someone comes in and says, hey this isn't your life, and off i go.......... or
A twelve year old that absolutely loves his life and having it taken away. This could go either way. If the child is happy, I vote for leaving the family intact with visitations to his mother. I'll prob have some rocks thrown at me for this opinion, but I have seen what uprooting does to some kids.

As it turned out he was still living in Arizona and had moved in with his parents in Peoria with the boy, less than 20 miles from the home he lived in 11 years ago. Mitchell was picked up by authorities at the house on Thursday and the now 12-year-old boy was placed in Child Protective Services.
At one point police said he threatened to inject the boy with drugs if she didn't pay him off.
The boy's mother hasn't seen him since.
Police said Mitchell has gone by several aliases and traveled in and out of various cities.
Mitchell faces a charge of custodial interference which is a class 3 felony. Police said more charges are possible.
The boy is in the custody of child protective services.
It is not sure when he will be reunited with his mother who now lives out of state.
