First Published May 13 2014 10:34 pm • Last Updated May 14 2014 07:58 pm

Police have arrested a transient man who was responsible for his toddler daughter when she disappeared.

Jamie Webb, 39, was caring for 15-month-old Sophea Larsen when police began trying to execute a court order that she be returned to her mother. Officers found Webb on May 6, but he evaded police and had been missing since then. Larsen was not with Webb at the time, but she was dropped off at a relative’s house the next day and was returned, uninjured, to her mother.
