A mother accused of abducting her two young children when she did not return them to their father in Marina del Rey after a scheduled visit was arrested Saturday, July 2 in Arizona.
The two toddlers, 2-year-old Noah and 4-year-old Seth, were found at their maternal grandmother’s home in Phoenix.
The grandmother returned the boys to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Marina del Rey station at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday. Deputies later reunited both of the boys with their father, according to a sheriff’s department statement.
The children were found after Phoenix police stopped their mother, 27-year-old Iman Milner, in a vehicle at around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Neither child was inside the car.
After the stop, Phoenix police contacted LASD, which had issued a critical missing children alert on May 29 for both of the boys and a warrant for Milner’s arrest. The father of the children contacted the sheriff’s department after Milner had not returned the boys at the end of their scheduled visit at 4 p.m. that day.
When they were informed that there was still a warrant for Milner, Phoenix police arrested the woman and booked her on suspicion of child abduction and violation of a court order. An LASD detective then contacted the grandmother, who confirmed the children were at her home.
Milner is being held in Maricopa County jail on $20,000 bond awaiting extradition to L.A. County.
