Authorities have located a Manitowoc man in Mexico, who police say fled the country with his son earlier this month to avoid reckless homicide charges.

Manitowoc Police Captain Scott Luchterhand says 57-year-old Timothy Miller, and his 14-year-old son Devin, were found safe and sound Thursday, just across the border from Laredo, Texas. Miller did not have legal custody of his son, and Luchterhand says he had been on the run since a visitation with the boy before the Fourth of July holiday.

Luchterhand says the FBI was instrumental in tracking Miller down and will assist with bringing him back to Wisconsin to face charges. He says it remains unclear how soon Miller will be extradited back to the United States.

Miller is charged in the February fentanyl-related death of 39-year-old Victor Gadzinski.
