Alleged abduction from Germany leads to arrest here

Woman fled to Canada with her son, Toronto police say

The Toronto Police Fugitive Squad arrested a woman in Mississauga on Wednesday for an alleged abduction in Germany.

According to police, Bettina Neumann, 43, had fled to Canada from Germany with her son in February. She’s wanted for the unlawful abduction of her son and for disobeying a court order.

Toronto’s Fugitive Squad had been collaborating with German authorities and local and federal law enforcement to locate Neumann and her son. They were found at an address near Lakeshore Road E. and Hurontario Street.

Neumann is being held at Vanier Correctional Center in Milton.

Her son is now in the care of his father, who arrived in Canada a few days ago.
