Police arrested 23-year-old Jonathan Chambers at a Greyhound bus station in Flagstaff. He was accused of allegedly kidnapping his two biological children from their mother, who had custody of them. He told the mother he was taking the 3-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl to Denver.
What may be unique about this case is that he was apprehended before boarding a bus. However he did travel from Flagstaff to Phoenix, a distance of 144 mi (about 2 hours 28 minutes). What mode of transportation he used was unclear.
The children were estimated to have been missing 3 ½ hours.
