PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix police say a man who left town with his 3-year-old daughter instead of returning her to her mother has been found in Mexico and the girl is safe.
Police spokesman officer James Holmes says 31-year-old Brent Anderson didn't turn over his daughter as required under a court order on Feb. 22.
Anderson had moved out of his house and police later found his vehicle abandoned at a bus station.
Police detectives, deputy U.S. marshals and Mexican authorities were able to track him to a small town outside Mazatlan.
Holmes says the little girl was found in a home late Friday and placed with social workers. Anderson was arrested on a U.S. warrant Saturday.
Both are expected to be returned to Phoenix next week. Anderson doesn't yet have a lawyer.
