PENDLETON, Ore. -- The search for a missing toddler is over, and his father is now behind bars in Oregon.

Umatilla Tribal Police confirm 49-year old Charles Remacle was arrested and booked in the Umatilla County Jail. He was arrested at the Wild Horse Casino in Pendleton this afternoon. Police say he took his son, 2-year old Colin Matthew Remacle from Lewiston, Idaho earlier this week, violating child custody laws.

Police say the child was with him at the time of the arrest. The boy will be in Oregon State custody until his mother arrives. Remacle suffers from bi-polarity and he is on probation for a domestic violence conviction.

He will be extradited back to Idaho. He faces charges for resisting arrest and will be charged through the state of Oregon.
