Texas fugitive, missing 6-year-old son tracked to downtown CdA apartment

Coeur d’Alene police and U.S. Marshals arrested a 47-year-old Texas man and took custody of his 6-year-old son Tuesday night after tracking the fugitive to a downtown apartment.

Ronald Whitted, of Fort Worth, Texas, is suspected of interfering with a child custody court order, according to a news release. He left Texas around March 17 with his son, and law enforcement believed he was attempting to flee the country.

Police also believed the child was in danger and requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service, a news release said. Federal agents then tracked Whitted to Idaho.

Coeur d’Alene police and U.S. Marshals arrested Whitted and rescued his son Tuesday night without incident.
