RICHLAND, WA - NBC Right Now has a wild story about a local woman eager to find her 11-year-old son after the boy's dad took him following a car accident and domestic dispute. 

It all started Thursday morning with a call to our newsroom about a desperate mom looking to find her son she had not seen since Tuesday.

After her and the child's dad got into an argument that turned physical in her car, the dad took off with the boy leaving her on the side of the street.

Minutes later the dad got into a car accident and disappeared with 11-year old Jaden. 

NBC Right Now spoke with Jaden's mom Crystal Carrey at her home Thursday afternoon. She showed us a picture of Jaden saying she just wanted to know if he was okay.

She also gave a description of Jaden's dad, Johnathon Blayze but did not want to speak on camera. 

Next NBC Right Now went to speak with Tyler Tollison, he posted a picture of the accident to the KNDU Facebook page Tuesday. 

After wrapping up the interview with Tollison, a man and boy fitting the exact description the mom gave us walked right past the NBC Right Now news car so we followed them and gave the mom a call telling her to call police. 

We saw the two walk into a wooded area and waited for officers.

It was not long until police arrived, we drove closer and there they were.

The young boy still with an obvious injury from the crash and the dad already in handcuffs. 

Amazed at what had just happened, we called the mom to tell her, her little boy was coming home. 

Police arrested Blayze on a warrant taking a car without permission and booked him into the Benton County Jail.

Officers say the boy was treated at Kadlec Regional Medical Center.They say it appears the two had been living outdoors for the last couple days.

The boy was covered in mosquito bites and we even saw one of the officer go buy him something to eat.
