A baby boy who was kidnapped from hospital by his Danish parents has turned up safe in Brno, in the Czech Republic. The parents went on the run after authorities planned to remove the infant from their custody and have now been arrested by Czech police.

Two-week-old Thor was kidnapped from Sydvestjysk Hospital in Esbjerg at the start of July and police and Europol had been looking for the trio for the last 13 days.

Hospital officials and police had expressed serious concern for the baby’s welfare following the abduction, as he was born with a heroin addiction due to his mother’s drug use during pregnancy and required vital medication on a regular basis.

Las Bjerregaard, chief inspector with South Jutland Police, said they did not have exact details about the child’s health status, but said he was admitted to a Czech children’s hospital in a reasonably good condition.

The parents are being held in custody by Czech police and we are starting the process of extraditing both the parents and child back to Denmark,’ said Bjerregaard.

Police said that the couple were found through a multinational investigation combined with information from the public.
