WASHINGTON - After looking for his daughter for six weeks Tom Rus will soon have an emotional reunion with 7-year-old Heidi Rus.
Rus talked to his daughter on the phone and said she seems to be okay. U.S. Marshals found Heidi Rus with her mother, 46-year-old Michele Finley, Friday in Las Vegas.
Police said Heidi was kidnapped from her grandparent's house in Pendleton, Oregon while her mother was on a supervised visit.
Finley was arrested at an apartment in Las Vegas. U.S. Marshals got a tip where Heidi was from someone who had seen a missing person poster.
Heidi's father is overwhelmed with happiness his daughter is okay.
The search for her led U.S. Marshals across the country. Her picture was posted on the website for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and that generated hundreds of tips.
Finley is behind bars and waiting extradition back to Oregon. Heidi's father will fly back to the Tri-Cities with his daughter.
