Missing Miami 6-year-old boy has tearful reunion with mother two months after being kidnapped

A 6-year-old boy had a tearful reunion with his mother at the airport in Miami, Florida, on Tuesday evening, more than two months after police say his father and grandmother abducted him and fled to Canada. 

Jorge “Jo-Jo” Morales ran into the arms of his mother, Yanet Concepcion, after being escorted home by law enforcement. 

The boy’s father, 45-year-old Jorge Morales, and paternal grandmother, 68-year-old Lilliam Morales, picked him up from Concepcion’s home in Miami on Aug. 27 as part of a custody agreement but never returned him.
