Police Say Child Abducted by Father Returned, Parent Arrested

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Police today said a 3-year-old girl with an unspecified medical condition, who was taken from her legal guardian by her father, was found safe Thursday and is now in the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services.

The child's father, Freddie Lee Wisner Jr., has been arrested on suspicion of child abduction and two warrants, the Los Angeles Police Department reported. Wisner had been allowed only monitored visits with the child.

Police said Wisner Jr., 40, went to the guardian's home on Jan. 22 and took Nevaeh Wisner without the guardian's consent.

Wisner and Nevaeh had last been seen in the 10500 block of Antwerp Street in Watts, police said.

The county's child services department was granted custody of Nevaeh on Feb. 1, and "a protective custody warrant was issued for Nevaeh Wisner and an arrest warrant was issued for Freddie Lee Wisner Jr.," police said.
