A missing 2-year-old New Mexico boy turned up with his father in Taneytown yesterday, more than four months after his mother had reported a family abduction to Albuquerque police and a possible flight to Maryland, according to state police at the Westminster barracks.

Brant James Stultz, 23, of no fixed address was charged as a fugitive from justice on a warrant from New Mexico authorities and placed in the Carroll County Detention Center, the police said. Stultz was arrested yesterday in the 4200 block of Copenhaver Lane, and his son was found unharmed.

The Department of Social Services was arranging the boy's return to his mother, according to police. Maryland State Police and the Maryland Center for Missing Children initially had tracked a suspect to an address in Jessup, in Howard County, investigators said, but they then believed the man was not in the state until they got a lead when a man applied for public assistance March 6 in Carroll County.
