Posted:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Police say that 13 years after a 5-year-old went missing from his home in Alabama, they've found him unharmed -- now an 18-year-old living in Ohio.
   
Authorities told news outlets that Julian Hernandez was found in Cleveland. His mother reported him missing from the Birmingham area in 2002.
   
His father, 53-year-old Bobby Hernandez, was arrested in Ohio. AL.com reports that he's charged with tampering with records in Ohio to get a driver's license and that police say he'll face abduction charges in Alabama.
   
Special Agent Vicki Anderson said the FBI in Ohio received information Oct. 30 that a local teenager may be a missing child. Anderson told AL.com that the boy and his father have apparently been living in Cleveland.
   
Authorities say Julian Hernandez is safe and unharmed.
