Mother held in son's abduction says 'he was taken from me'

Jamul, California-AP -- "He was taken from me."

That was Debra Rose's response to a reporter's question about why she took her nine-year-old son, Nicholas Farber.

Nicholas is now back with his father, while Rose and an unidentified man are in jail. They were found yesterday at a campground 20 miles east of San Diego.

The boy was abducted Wednesday morning by two men who broke into his house and attacked his father.

Nicholas has been at the center of a custody fight since his parents divorced in 1996.

Investigators are still looking for others believed to be involved in the kidnapping, including Rose's former roommate.
