A 1-month-old Northern California boy who authorities say was kidnapped has been recovered, and his father has been arrested by Mexican authorities.

Henry Guler-Romero of Sunnyvale was allegedly abducted by his father, 22-year-old Mesut Guler, around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, and an Amber Alert was issued.

California Highway Patrol Capt. Dave Pitts said Mexican authorities stopped Guler at a checkpoint near Arizona.

"Based on their interview with him, they called the U.S. Patrol at Lukeville, gave them the name, the U.S. Border Patrol ran his name in the computer system, and discovered that there was a warrant for his arrest for the child abduction," Pitts said.

Sunnyvale police issued an AMber Alert Tuesday night after the mother reported the baby missing. Guler apparently told his wife he was taking the child to New York — and threatened to kill himself and his son if police were notified.

KGO-TV reports that Guler was arrested on Wednesday on a $1 million warrant obtained by Sunnyvale investigators.

The station says Guler was stopped at a checkpoint in Mexico and questioned by authorities. They contacted U.S. Border Patrol, who discovered the warrant.
