The man that was arrested for child abduction in Cody, Wyo. was on the internet just days after the abduction wishing “all are well.”

Jesse Paul Speer, 39, a photographer from Montana was arrested for abducting a child in Cody when he was found to be connected to the white Toyota 4-Runner with the cargo box on top, the authorities have been looking for.

On Saturday, FBI agents were able to locate Speer by reviewing the surveillance video at Yellowstone National Park on Oct. 7 and seeing a white SUV with the cargo box going into the park and later leaving. The investigators matched the license plate number to Speer, reports the Missoulian.
