Authorities have located missing 11-year-old, Sophie Long, from Texas in a foreign country. Sophie had been missing since July of this year.
According to reports, the missing girl was with her father, Michael Long, when she was rescued. Long was immediately taken into police custody.
Long fled the country with his daughter over a child custody dispute, now facing a felony charge of interference with child custody.
Long was uncooperative in his custody case with his ex-wife Kelly Long. In the custody battle, the ex-wife was demanding the imprisonment of Long for allegedly withholding Sophie from her. Long expressed that he’d go to jail to protect Sophie during this battle.
Sophie was set to return to Texas on Saturday while authorities are working on extraditing Long to the US. (Independent)
