Wanted Father Turns Himself In

A central Kentucky father who was at the center of an amber alert speaks out to 27 newsfirst, just before turning himself in.

Authorities had been looking for Robin Maple since Friday when they say he took his infant son after a fight with the boys mother. He later dropped him off at his grandparents.

Mapel says he did nothing wrong when he took his son. He says he was only protecting his eight-month-old son from his unfit mother.

A hearing to determine who should have custody of Mapel's child will be held Monday morning.
