Abducted Waurika Child Found In Florida

WAURIKA, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a 17-month-old Waurika girl abducted by her father several weeks ago has been found in Florida.

OSBI agents say Bradley Goodson picked up his daughter, Aubrey, on February 3 for his regular weekend visitation, but he did not return the girl to her mother.

According to the OSBI, Goodson drove to Florida on February 3 and answered an ad for a roommate in West Palm Beach. The homeowner became suspicious due to the lack of toys, clothing, and other items for Aubrey.

Friday morning, authorities said Goodson accidentally called his daughter by her real name. The homeowner then checked the website for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, that's when she found a photo of Aubrey and information on her abduction.

While Goodson was in the bathroom, the homeowner took Aubrey to the local police department. The West Palm Beach Police Department contacted OSBI about the girl.

Goodson was leaving the home as West Palm Beach officers arrived. He led officers on a chase. He was able to get away after he left his vehicle and ran from officers.

Police are still searching for Goodson who has several charges pending.

A private Oklahoma company has donated its plane and pilot to quickly reunite Aubrey with her mother. An OSBI agent is escorting the mother to Florida.
