Mesa police: Missing woman and baby found safe in California
MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Police say a Mesa woman and her infant son who have been missing since June in a custodial interference case have been found safe in California.
They say 19-year-old Madeline Jones was being detained by San Diego authorities Monday and 1-year-old William Jones-Gouchenour was being held by Child Protective Services until his father's arrival.
The woman's parents were arrested last week while preparing to board a flight at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
Police submitted charges to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, alleging conspiracy to commit interference by Roland Jones and his wife.
He reported his daughter and grandson missing on June 16.
Police believe the parents were aware that Jacob Gouchenour had been granted joint custody and allegedly helped their daughter deny her ex-husband access to his baby boy.
