Indiana boy recovered by police in Kentucky

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a 4-year-old boy has
been recovered in Kentucky two days after he was taken from his
Indiana home.

Terre Haute police and the FBI say John Johnson-Christian was
recovered unharmed Thursday by officers in Pikeville, Ky.

FBI spokesman Drew Northern says federal, state and local
officers arrested the two suspects who police believe abducted the
boy Tuesday. It wasn't clear if they had attorneys.

Police say the boy's mother let her ex-boyfriend, 24-year-old
Nicholas Runyon, and 28-year-old April Bell take the boy Tuesday
morning for a trip to a birthday party but they didn't return him.

The Tribune-Star reports Terre Haute police Detective Jimmy
Richardson told a judge Wednesday that Runyon claims he is the
child's father, but that a court has ruled another man is the
father.
