Child Home In KY After Amber Alert Case

A Frankfort mother is back home in Kentucky with her kidnapped daughter who was at the center of an Amber Alert.

Breanna Woodside's mother left for Texas on Wednesday morning.

Police found the two-year-old with her father, Miles Thomas Woodside, in Monterrey, Mexico Tuesday night.

Frankfort police say Woodside was tracked to a Holiday Inn in Mexico after he made a phone call to his mother who lives in Alabama.

Mexican police and FBI agents responded to the hotel on Tuesday afternoon, but there was no sign of Woodside. About an hour later, they returned to the hotel to review security tapes and an officer spotted the wanted man.

Woodside and his daughter are now in Laredo, Texas.

The search for the pair started on Friday night after Miles Woodside failed to return his daughter to her mother in Frankfort.

Woodside and his daughter have been spotted in several states including Alabama and Tennessee where police say he abandoned a car.

Breanna Woodside and her mother arrived in Lexington's Blue Grass Airport Wednesday night.

So far, Miles Woodside faces charges of custodial inference and the theft of a car. Police say he'll face federal charges for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

    There is things not being told about this situation evidently, why does he not have some kinds of custody and it seems terribly that a father thinks he has to take a child to be able to spend time with it, it seems both sides agree that he is good to her.....somebody needs to see that this is worked out for her benfit.

    i'm glad to see the child is home safe.and what the dad did was wrong.but what would push a man to think he had to kidnap his child just to get to spend some time with her,is another matter.divorce is bad for any family.but when people use their children against each other,thats wrong.and we all know it happens every day.and the only one that really gets hurt is the kids.a child needs both long will it take for people to figure that one out.a child is not a pawn in a divorce........

    If this man really loves his child as much as he pretends, then he just messed up in major fashion because he will only be seeing her on certain weekends behind very thick glass in prison.
