LUKEVILLE, AZ (AP/CBS5) -

A 1-month-old Northern California boy who authorities said was kidnapped was recovered Wednesday night, and his 22-year-old father was arrested by Mexican authorities.

Henry Guler-Romero of Sunnyvale was allegedly abducted by his father, Mesut Guler, a Turkish national, around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, and an Amber Alert was issued.

Guler was arrested on Wednesday on a $1 million warrant obtained by Sunnyvale investigators.

The station says Guler was stopped at a checkpoint in Mexico and questioned by authorities. They contacted U.S. Border Patrol at Arizona's Port of Lukeville, who discovered the warrant. 

After confirming the active arrest warrant, Lukeville Port officials prepared to take custody of the father and son from Mexican authorities.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department and Child Protection Services were notified. Guler and his child were turned over to sheriff's deputies.
