| No Comments

The nearly two-week-long search for a missing Northland boy and his father ended late Saturday night with the boy recovered safely and the father hospitalized with self-inflicted wounds.

Brookston, Minn. Residents, Wyatt Nordrum, 7, and his father James Leon Nordrum Jr., 41, were found in a cabin in St. Louis County's Stoney Brook Township, the Duluth News Tribune said.

Wyatt had been declared missing since March 27 after his father took him and hid in the rural cabin.

Nordrum Jr. and Wyatt's mother, Candice Nordrum of Fort Frances, Ontario, were in a custody battle over the boy when the kidnapping occurred, the Duluth News Tribune said.

According to the St. Louis County Sheriff, Nordrum Jr. is currently being treated at St. Luke's Hospital in Duluth for self inflicted neck injuries, ABC Eyewitness News said.

Authorities say Nordrum Jr. faces a possible charge of kidnapping and depravation of parental rights.
