Heidi Rus Update
7 year-old Heidi Rus has finally been found after being abducted about six weeks ago. She was found with her mother, 46-year-old, Michelle Finley, who is now in jail.
At about 3 this afternoon, U.S. Marshalls found Heidi Rus and her mother Michelle Finley in Las Vegas.
Rus was abducted about a month and a half ago from her grandparents house in Pendleton, Oregon. The U.S. Marshalls acted on a public tip and made Finley's arrest at an apartment. Finley is awaiting extradition back to Oregon while Heidi is in protective custody until her father, Tom, flies into Las Vegas tomorrow night. He talked to her for the first time this afternoon.
He said, "She was great..she was like, hey Dad, how you doin'? It was like she was on vacation. But I was like, do you know how scared I've been about her."
Tom Rus says that he while he doesn't want to take his daughter away from his mother, he will be much more careful with Finley's visitations in the future. He says most of all, he is glad he gets to see his daughter tomorrow.
