Dothan kidnapping suspect, victim, family apprehended in Ohio

Dothan, Alabama Police confirm that kidnapping suspect Charles Partin, 15-year-old Aileen Lander, and the entire family were apprehended in Ohio around 3:00 a.m. this morning.

Preliminary information suggests that they were caught in Cincinnati, but this is unconfirmed.  There is an active Amber Alert in effect for Aileen Lander, and she is now safe as are the other children in the family.

Authorities have been searching for the 15-year-old since she was taken from DHR custody by a man identified as her step-father, Charles Partin on Monday.
Lander was abducted from Southeast Alabama Medical Center during a scheduled medical appointment.   

Julie Bethke was arrested on a state warrant out of Alabama for interference with the custody of a minor. Partin was arrested on a federal warrant for kidnapping.

Partin and Bethke were turned over to US Marshalls and booked into the Hamilton County Jail Justice Center in Cincinnati.
