The abduction occurred in Rhode Island by the child’s father. The vehicle was described as a Penske rental truck that had last been seen on Interstate 95 in Nassau County.

Both Trooper Daniels and Bottin proceeded north on I-95 and within minutes spotted the vehicle heading southbound on I-295 in Jacksonville. After initiating a traffic stop, the child was located unharmed.

The father was subsequently arrested and booked into the Duval County jail. The child was turned over to the custody of the Florida Division of Family Services which contacted the child’s legal guardian.
