Michael Wilson, who authorities say stole his 2-year-old daughter away from her custodial grandmother, is now in the Bradley County Jail.

Wilson failed to bring little Skyla Wilson home from scheduled visitation. Instead, authorities said, he went on the run with her for 10 days and was caught in Grand Junction, Colo., on Aug. 18. He waived extradition.

In a news release Saturday night, Lt. James E. Bradford Jr. with the Bradley County Sheriff's Office said Wilson was returned around 8:15 p.m. and will appear Monday in General Sessions Court.
