California Highway Patrol officers located a Belmont woman and her 2-year-old son in Marin County Thursday evening after she allegedly took him in violation of a custody order earlier in the day, police said.
At about 4:40 p.m. Belmont police received a report that a 23-year-old Belmont woman had left her home with her son in violation of a court order, according to Capt. Patrick Halleran said.
Belmont Police initiated an investigation and alerted Bay Area law enforcement officials to be on the lookout for the pair, traveling in the woman's gray 2013 Volkswagen Touareg, according to Halleran.
At about 6:15 p.m., the California Highway Patrol notified Belmont police that they had found the woman and the boy unharmed in Marin County.
Investigators are looking into the incident and considering whether the woman should be charged with violating a court order, Halleran said.
"Belmont Police would like to thank the California Highway Patrol for their quick action in bringing a positive outcome to this incident," he added.
