A missing girl from Alaska was recovered on Friday afternoon by U.S. Marshals and Gillette police officers, the Marshal’s office announced.

The girl was kidnapped from her home state of Alaska in the spring by her non-custodial mother, Autumn Wilson.

Wilson was arrested April 19 on charges of custodial interference and kidnapping, but the child was not recovered at the time of Wilson’s arrest. Wilson is being housed at the Campbell County Detention Center, pending extradition back to Alaska.

“This case is a great example of what can be accomplished when law enforcement agencies work together,” said Randall Huff, U.S. Marshal for the District of Wyoming. “We are very thankful this child was rescued unharmed and will soon be returned to the family.”

The Gillette Police Department and Huff’s office did not immediately return a request for comment on Friday. More information was not immediately available.
