Sparks - A baby kidnapped from a home in Sparks is now back with her mother.
Investigators say the child's mother was afraid the father would take three-month-old Mia to Mexico following an argument between the two parents.
The Sheriff's Department negotiated with the father, Esai Anthony Sandoval, and eventually talked him into turning the girl over to authorities.
"Our negotiators were able to get the father to agree to a neutral location in El Paso where he would meet with them to turn over custody of the child."
Charges against Sandoval are pending.
