Canadian Boy Abducted in 2005 is Found in Arizona

CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Arizona authorities say a Canadian boy abducted by his mother six years ago is expected to be reunited soon with his father.

Chandler police said Wednesday that 10-year-old Valor Howell was found in good condition Sunday along with his mother, 51-year-old Jamie Howell.

Detectives say the boy was 3 when he was abducted in 2005. Police found the pair at a coin-operated laundry after they responded to a disturbance call.

Valor's father Garrett Taylor told Canadian Press he had hired detectives to find the boy and created a Facebook page titled "Find Valor Howell."

The situation ended when Chandler police ran a check and discovered Jamie Howell was wanted in Canada on suspicion of parental abduction.

Taylor was heading to Arizona to reunite with his son.
