ASHLAND, Ore. – A child was reunited with his biological mom Friday morning, after his biological father took their child without consent.
The three year old had been listed as missing in the state of California, but Thursday evening the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a tip from Arcata police regarding a possible sighting of the suspect. The man in question, Ramin Ahadi, of Arcata was the child’s biological father and had been involved in the child custody case.

Ahadi currently remains in the Jackson County Jail where he is charged with custodial interference, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and criminal mischief 1. His bail is set at $55,000.
