Missing Kentucky boy found in Utah with mother after private investigation

CLEARFIELD, Utah — A 5-year-old boy missing from Kentucky since November has been found with his mother in Utah after a little private detective work.

Officials from the Davis County sheriff’s office say they found the boy in good health Tuesday. He was taken into Child Protective Services custody and will be reunited with his father.

Deputies say the boy was listed in a national missing person database on Nov. 1, the last day his father saw him.

The father hired a private investigator, who located the child in Clearfield and asked police to stop the vehicle.

The boy was found with his mother, Yvonne Slone. She was arrested and is awaiting extradition to Kentucky.

A man with the mother and child was released at the scene.
