According to WTVY
, Edward J. Hanko, Special Agent In Charge at the FBI office in Cincinnati, said that Charles Partin, 36, was arrested on a federal warrant for kidnapping. Authorities suspect that Partin kidnapped Lander from the Southeast Alabama Medical Center back on September 17, 2012.
According to San Francisco Chronicle
, Lander's mother, Julie Ann Bethke, now faces state charges in Alabama.
Days before Lander disappeared, Hanko went onto his Facebook page and posted that the state had taken custody of his stepdaughter and that he missed her a lot.
