Minnesota missing boy found safe after two weeks.

Thank you everyone!!!!!!!  If you prayed or thought about or anything to help thanks a lot.

Here is the story from the Duluth News Tribune

A missing Brookston boy and his father have been found.
Wyatt Nordrum, 7, and his father, James Leon Nordrum Jr., 41, were found in a rural cabin in St. Louis County's Stoney Brook Township late Saturday night with the help of tips from the public, according to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office.
Wyatt Nordrum had been missing since March 27 after allegedly being kidnapped by his father, who is embroiled in a custody battle with Wyatt's mother, Candice Nordrum of Fort Frances, Ontario.
Nordrum Jr. is in intensive care and stable condition after surgery at St. Luke's hospital in Duluth. He sustained self-inflicted injuries to his neck, according to the sheriff’s report.
Terri Port Wright, an attorney who is representing Nordrum Jr., said Wyatt has been reunited with his mother. She said the boy was not injured.
“He was safe the whole time,” Port Wright told the News Tribune.
Port Wright said she didn’t know how law enforcement agents were able to locate the Nordrums.
She said it was her understanding that Nordrum Jr. injured himself when he learned that he was about to be caught. She said she does not know how he hurt himself, but said it was not with a firearm.
The activity involved with the arrest of Nordrum Jr. and recovery of the Wyatt Nordrum woke Bob and Joann Anderson, who live nearby, about midnight.
“Our dog is in the basement for the night. He started barking and barking and barking,” Bob Anderson told the News Tribune this afternoon.
Anderson looked out of the couple’s house and saw a van belonging to a first responder parked in his driveway. Anderson went outside and saw “eight or 10 cars in the field with flashing lights.”
Anderson saw a man with a flashlight approaching and asked the man to identify himself. The man turned out to be a Carlton County deputy sheriff who told Anderson that Nordrum Jr. and his son had been found in a cabin nearby. Anderson said that the deputy said Nordrum Jr. “tried to commit suicide. He tried to cut his own throat.”
The couple said that they had not seen anyone at the cabin recently, but noted that they can’t see the cabin directly from their place. They said they have no idea why Nordrum Jr. would be near their property. Joann Anderson said, “We had never seen him or his son.”
The father was taken into custody, and the son was recovered at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.
Nordrum Jr. was arrested, facing initial charges of kidnapping and deprivation of parental rights, according to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office, which said additional charges could be filed, pending further investigation.
The Fond du Lac and Cloquet police departments, Carlton County Sheriff's Office, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Anoka County Sheriff's Office and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension also assisted in locating the Nordrums.

The little boy missing we where talking on the wreck

LOQUET, Minnesota (Isabelle Zehnder reporting) -- On Thursday evening, HLN's Nancy Grace spotlighted the case of Wyatt Nordrum, the 7-year-old autistic boy who went missing from Cloquet, Minnesota, revealing a text message was received from the boy this week. 
Wyatt has been missing for 12 days. It is believed he was abducted by his father, James Leon Nordrum Jr., 41, who had allegedly lost custody of his son to the boy's mother, Candice Norstrum.
Candice allegedly moved to Canada to live closer to her parents because she feared her estranged husband. The Duluth News Tribune reports a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Norstrum's cousin, Amy Hill, said during an interview on The Nancy Grace Show that their family received a text message from Wyatt's cellphone Tuesday that read: "Hello, how are things going?"
She said there has been no other contact from Wyatt or James to her family since then.
Police say James has prior mental health issues and had indicated he would harm Wyatt if he lost custody, KARE 11 reports. According to reports, James said if he couldn't have Wyatt, nobody else could. Hill says the statement is false but gave no reason as to how she came to that conclusion.
Lt. Lukovsky said he learned about the text from Wyatt's phone Thursday morning and that investigators are checking on the source of the text, which was allegedly sent midday Tuesday.
Lukovsky said Wyatt has a cellphone because of the ongoing custody and visitation issues between his parents.
The Duluth News Tribune reports that Candice was granted custody of Wyatt last month after attorneys for both parents came to an agreement. The couple had been involved in a custody battle since January 2011, with custody going back and forth between father and mother. Nordrum was supposed to drop Wyatt off at the St. Louis County Courthouse on March 27 but never showed.
Police have issued a statewide alert for the father and son and say no one has heard from them since they didn’t show up at the courthouse.
Police say they do not know what type of vehicle Nordrum might have used to flee the area. All of his and his family’s vehicles have been accounted for, St. Louis County Deputy Lt. Jason Lukovsky said Thursday.
Officers say they are following a possible lead from central Minnesota where the father and son might have been spotted last week. That lead might offer a vehicle description, “but other than that, we just don’t have any real good information,” Lukovsky said.
“If we can get a vehicle description, we have something more we can get out there to the media and the public and to other law enforcement agencies to go on,” he said. “We really don’t want people to forget these faces. We want to keep this out there so someone recognizes them.”
Ground and aerial searches on properties owned by James and his father in the Brookston area were performed this week yielded nothing to help in the investigation.
Police said no credit card transactions or cellphone activity has been traced from Nordrum, other than Wyatt’s text, that would aid in finding the father and son.
Lukowsky said speaking on the Nancy Grace show wasn’t ideal, especially after he learned his remarks were sandwiched between comments from both sides in a heated custody battle. He is, however, hoping the national exposure will help in the investigation.
“It got the pictures out there,” Lukowsky said. “That was my only motivation.” Photos of Wyatt and James were displayed throughout most of Thursday’s show.
St. Louis County officers were sent to James’ home looking for Wyatt. They said it appeared he had vacated the home, taking clothing with them. Police initially believed Wyatt’s paternal grandfather, James Nordrum Sr. may have been involved and were also searching for him. The search was called off when he was located, Northland News Center reports.
James Leon Nordrum Jr. is described as 225 pounds and 5’6” tall.
Anyone who sees James and Wyatt or who have information about this case are asked to call 911.
