TROWBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A child who was kidnapped by a parent who does not have custody of him was found in Ohio, deputies say.
The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office said during a supervised visit, Gordon Green Jr. grabbed his 4-year-old child and “took off” in a car on Tuesday. Deputies believed they were with the child’s mother, Angela Etts. The parents do not have legal custody of the 4-year-old, so he was considered kidnapped.
Deputies said the parents were headed east on I-94. It was believed they could be taking their son to Florida.
The 4-year-old was found in Ohio, the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office said in an update Tuesday evening. It said arrangements were being made to reunite the boy with his guardian.
The FBI assisted the sheriff’s office. The sheriff told News 8 the parental kidnapping likely did not qualify for an Amber Alert.
