A 5-year-old boy, who vanished in Indiana 19 years ago, has been found.

Richard Landers Jr. is 24-years-old now, and living in Minnesota.

Police in Wolcottville, Indiana, say Landers’ grandparents kidnapped him in 1994 as his parents were involved in a custody dispute.

Police say the grandparents lived under assumed names in Browerville, Minnesota, and raised Richard.

Today he lives nearby, and has his own family.

Landers’ mother and stepfather say they’re looking forward to being reunited with him.
