Man Wanted For Child Kidnapping In Colorado Found In Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A 60-year-old man and a boy he's suspected of kidnapping from Colorado were found near a southern Utah lake where they had been walking naked after asking for food and water from campers.

Garfield County sheriff's spokeswoman Denise Dastrup said David Glenn Freeman and the 12-year-old boy were located Monday near Pangutich Lake about 265 miles (426 kilometers) south of Salt Lake City after an Amber Alert was issued Sunday night in Saguache County in southwestern Colorado.

Freeman was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and lewdness. It was unknown if he had an attorney.

The boy was taken to a hospital to get evaluated. The Associated Press isn't naming him because he's a juvenile.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigations says in a news release that Freeman and the boy know each other but aren't related.
