Kidnapped Florida boy found in Canada reunites with mom after 2 months apart

A 6-year-old Florida boy, who authorities said had been kidnapped by his father and taken to Canada, was finally reunited with his mother Tuesday night after more than two months apart.

Jorge “JoJo” Morales walked hand-in-hand with police officers as he was escorted off a plane at Miami International Airport. But when he spotted his mother, Yanet Concepcion, he broke free and ran to give her a hug.

“I missed you so much!” Concepcion exclaimed as she picked her son up in an embrace.

She smiled as she wiped away tears, telling reporters, “I can’t stop crying, I’m so happy.”

The 6-year-old boy had been missing since Aug. 27 after police said his father, Jorge Gabriel Morales, and paternal grandmother, Lilliam Pena Morales, picked him up from his mother’s home for a scheduled visit. They never returned him.

He was first the subject of a Florida Missing Child Alert before it was upgraded to an Amber Alert two days later.
