Authorities claim that a 6-year-old Miami-Dade youngster who was abducted by his father and brought to Canada was reunited with his mother on Tuesday.
After arriving in Miami, Jorge “JoJo” Morales received a bear embrace from his mother, Yanet Concepcion.
After JoJo raced into her arms, Concepcion remarked, “I missed you so much,” while laughing joyfully.
Concepcion previously posted a picture of the youngster on the aircraft.
Concepcion told reporters Tuesday night, “I’m sorry, I can’t stop sobbing. I’m really pleased.” “I really missed that boy,”
Concepcion said that she would recreate Halloween and her birthday in honor of her son’s safe return because he missed them while he was away.
Morales had not been seen since Aug. 27 when his father allegedly failed to deliver him to his mother in accordance with a custody arrangement, according to officials. A tipster saw the youngster and his father in a Walmart on Sunday, where they were later discovered to be in New Brunswick, Canada.
The informant said police he observed the father and son shopping and contacted the police from a Walmart in Moncton, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Concepcion stated, “I phoned her and we both started to weep.” I only desire to meet her.
Police intervened and detained the father, Jorge Morales. Lilliam Pena Morales, the boy’s grandmother, was also detained after they located her around 45 minutes from the Walmart.
A private investigator turned up security footage of the youngster and his father at a Walmart in Maine just days after they were reported missing, prompting the FBI to announce earlier this month that they would pay $10,000 as reward for the child’s safe return.
For interfering with custody and hiding a child in violation of a court order, the elder Jorge Morales and his mother were sought for.
For the youngster, an Amber Alert had been issued on August 29.
