Vancouver Police

Vancouver police say a nine-year-old boy allegedly abducted by his mother has been found safe near Phoenix, Ariz.

Police say Shawana Chaudhary shares custody of her son with his father and the pair have a court-ordered parenting schedule.

The boy's father went to pick him up from school on March 9, as scheduled, but he wasn't there and police were contacted.

Police say Chaudhary, the boy and his younger sister were found safe on Tuesday with assistance from investigators at the United States Department of Homeland Security.

Chaudhary is in custody and police say she is expected to be extradited to Canada in the coming days to face a charge, which has been approved by Crown counsel related to the alleged abduction.
