WILKINSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Allegheny County police say a 4-year-old Pittsburgh-area boy has been located in North Carolina, and his non-custodial father has been taken into custody.

Police say 43-year-old Radford Pope, of Pitcairn, disappeared after taking the boy to the movies on Sept. 10. Police began searching for Pope and his son, Raymont, because the man doesn’t have custody of the boy and has a history as a Megan’s Law offender.

County police say officers in Greensboro, North Carolina, found the Popes on Tuesday. Police were reuniting the boy with his mother, who lived in the Pittsburgh suburb of Wilkinsburg.

Polices say this is the third time Radford Pope has taken the boy without permission. Court records show kidnapping-related charges were reduced in a plea bargain after Pope took the boy to New York for a week in 2011.
