Missing New York girl found by FBI in Thailand

Authorities say a New York girl abducted nearly five years ago by her non-custodial father has been found in good health in Thailand.

Onondaga County Sheriff Kevin Walsh said Deonna Shipman, now 8, was found just over two weeks ago by the FBI in Bangkok and is back in the county. Walsh said Tuesday she'd been missing from the town of Salina, near Syracuse, N.Y., since July 2007 after Jeffery Shipman took her and fled the country.

Shipman, 51, was arrested in Bangkok on federal international parental kidnapping charges. He was arraigned in Los Angeles and will eventually be returned to Onondaga County for further court appearances.

Shipman had reportedly been on the FBI's Most Wanted List.

Walsh said the girl's mother, Lioubov Shipman, is returning from Russia to be re-united with her daughter, the Post-Standard newspaper reported. 

Authorities believe Shipman acted after losing custody of Deonna.
