COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. - A mother wanted for custodial interference has surrendered to authorities, according to the FBI.

Authorities found the daughter in New Jersey on April 29, 2013. She is now back with her father, he confirmed to KVAL News.

Deanna Denise Lane was wanted on a warrant for custodial interference after she failed to show up a scheduled exchange with the father of her 5-year-old daughter in February.

Lane and the child's father, Stephen Colbert of Cottage Grove, had a joint custody agreement barring Lane from moving any farther than 60 miles from Eugene without the father's approval.

Lane didn't show up February 3. On February 26, the Eugene Police Department filed a probable cause affidavit stating that Lane had committed the crime of custodial interference.

On March 26, 2013, the child's father provided Eugene Police with a supplemental judgment awarding him sole custody of his daughter.

On April 12, 2013, Eugene Police obtained an arrest warrant for Lane, charging her with custodial interference.

On April 18, 2013, a federal complaint was obtained and an arrest warrant issued for Lane in the United States District Court, District of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, after she was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
