This is typical of the fathers who abduct or kidnap the kids. As you can see, UNNAMED DAD has a history of domestic violence. In this case, Mom had even filed for an order of protection. Thankfully, somebody was alert enough at the U.S.-Canadian border to catch Daddy. Hopefully, they won't let him out on bond, or otherwise these kids will just disappear again.

An American man who told Canadian border officers he was moving to Alaska with his children has been arrested at the Surrey, B.C., border crossing.
Canada Border Services officers questioned the man when he arrived at the border with his two children on Thursday.
The 33-year-old father had several documents that said he had full custody of the children, but Canadian border officers made further checks.
It turned out the man had a domestic violence protective order filed against him by the mother of the children and that both the children were reported missing in May this year.
The children are now in custody of U.S. child-protection officials and their mother has been notified.
The man has been turned over to American officials to face charges.
