Five days after a nationwide child abduction alert was sounded, a 31/2 year old Aberdeen boy, Tyler Siquiedo, was safely turned over to Grays Harbor Sheriffs deputies Tuesday night.

Tyler’s father, Jesse Vaidabid, allegedly ran off with him in November of 2005. Police and Tyler’s mother, Kristin Lipp, had spoken with Vaidabid several times on his cell phone and urged him to return the boy. Vaidabid had agreed to bring Tyler to the Grays Harbor Sheriffs Office in Montesano Monday morning, but failed to show up, according to Aberdeen Police.

When he finally arrived on Tuesday, Tyler appeared to be in good health, Aberdeen Police said. He was taken into protective custody and placed with Child Protective Services. Vaidabid was wanted on a $10,000 felony warrant for custodial interference and was arrested.

Though Lipp was Tyler’s sole guardian, she gave Vaidabid temporary custody of their son in November. After he allegedly refused to return Tyler, she contacted police.

On Monday, the U.S. Marshals Service joined the Aberdeen Police in the search for Tyler. The next morning, several deputy marshals arrived in Albany, Ore., where Vaidabid was believed to staying.

Aberdeen police say the efforts of the Marshals Service and Vaidabid’s family persuaded him to surrender.
