AG: 2 Abducted New Mexico Boys Brought Back From Colorado

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M (AP) – Two New Mexico boys allegedly kidnapped by their father more than a year ago have been rescued in Colorado.

New Mexico Attorney General Gary King says his office had been working for months on the case with Rio Rancho police and federal agencies.

He says the boys – ages 6 and 8 – were returned to Albuquerque early Friday by agents from the AG’s Office.

Colorado authorities are credited with recovering the boys after a brief scuffle with their father.

They say 53-year-old James Gonzales of Albuquerque is awaiting extradition.

He’s being held on suspicion of custodial interference charges along with aggravated battery on a police officer and evading arrest in Colorado’s Costilla County.

Gonzales also had a no-bond warrant issued by the FBI for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
