UPDATE: Sunday, May 26, 2013

Colorado prosecutors are working with Canadian officials to take custody of a 51-year-old man accused of attacking his estranged wife with pepper spray and a stun gun and kidnapping their young son.

Monty Turner was arrested Sunday in Brandon, Manitoba, with 3-year-old Luke. Authorities say the boy was unharmed, and they were working to reunite him with his mother Monday.

Police say Monty Turner forced his way into the Longmont, Colo., home of his wife, Brandy Turner, on Saturday and fled with Luke. Monty Turner was found with the boy in a motel in Manitoba.

The Longmont Daily Times-Call reported Monday that Brandy Turner says she spoke with Luke on the phone and that he knows he's coming home. She says she can't go get him because she has no passport.


According to the Longmont Police Department, Turner shocked his estranged wife with a stun gun and pepper sprayed her before he kidnapped their son.

Turner was seen riding away with Luke on a bicycle with a childrens' seat, police said, and had likely parked a vehicle nearby to make his getaway.

An Amber Alert that had been issued for Luke was cancelled this afternoon.

Early this morning, Monty Turner's father was arrested after he was pulled over in Missouri while driving a car being sought in connection with his grandson's disappearance, Longmont police told ABC News' Denver affiliate. Ronald Turner was arrested as an accessory, police said.
