Sandra Bennatts has been arrested after allegedly abducting her son Mason Joseph Bennatts-Miller on Monday.

She doesn’t have custody and allegedly went to her mother’s house and held the boy’s grandmother at knife point in order to kidnap him.

The abduction in Auburn, WA prompted police to issue an Amber Alert hunt for Bennatts. After they located her she led them on a high speed chase before they forced her to stop.

“Vehicle and mother found. Child located,” said the King County Sheriff’s Office Media Relations Officer via Twitter.
