JEFF DAVIS PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

According to Louisiana State Police Sergeant James Anderson, local authorities were contacted by Houston Police looking for a missing child.

Houston Police said the child was taken by his non-custodial father from Fairfax County in Virginia.

Houston police became involved when the father was believed to be in the area. Local authorities were contacted after receiving a lead that the father may be in the area.

After issuing a "be on the look out" for the vehicle, Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's deputies located the vehicle on Interstate 10.

State police pulled the vehicle over and recovered the child.

At this time, Virginia authorities are not filing charges and the father has been released.
