HAWTHORNE, Nev. (AP) -- A 10-year-old California girl was rescued safely after allegedly being abducted from her bedroom by her former baby sitter, who may have become disgruntled after being fired by the family.
Nichole Taylor Timmons appeared unhurt and in good spirits, said Mineral County Sheriff Rocky McKellip.
Nichole was found Tuesday when the truck she was riding in was pulled over on a highway about 110 miles south of Reno, more than 300 miles from her Riverside, Calif., home.
Former baby sitter Glenn Park, 68, was arrested for investigation of kidnapping and jailed in lieu of $250,000 bail.
Nichole was found about five hours after an "Amber Alert" was issued, resulting in hundreds of calls from motorists who believed they saw Nichole with Park.
Fake IDs suspect arrested
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- A man who fled to Egypt last month while being investigated for allegedly providing fake IDs to two of the Sept. 11 hijackers was arrested upon returning to New York.
Mohamed el-Atriss was detained by U.S. Customs agents at New York's Kennedy Airport Tuesday.
According to the FBI, el-Atriss sold phony IDs to Khalid Almihdhar, who was on the airliner that crashed into the Pentagon, and Abdulaziz Alomari, who was aboard one of the planes that hit the World Trade Center.
El-Atriss was aware of the charges against him when he returned, authorities said. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.
Jailed millionaire to stay put
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- An appeals court refused Tuesday to release a lawyer jailed more than seven years for contempt of court for not turning over $2.5 million in his divorce case.
H. Beatty Chadwick, 66, has been in prison since April 5, 1995, accused of hiding the money from his wife in divorce proceedings.
A federal judge ruled in January that Chadwick should be released, saying his incarceration had "crossed the line from coercive to punitive" and that he was not likely to turn over the money.
But a three-judge panel of the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Tuesday that keeping Chadwick confined indefinitely does not violate the constitution as long as he is able to pay.
