File photo.

Nathaniel D. Fortney appeared in an Adams County courtroom Monday.

Fortney was arrested on April 27th after he allegedly abducted his own 18-month-old child and drove to Oklahoma.

The 18 month old was listed as a missing person, however an AMBER Alert was not issued because the case did not meet state requirements.

Fortney was charged with one count of Child Abduction and a misdemeanor count of Domestic Battery in connection to a late April incident.

Fortney is being held on a $50,000 bond. A preliminary hearing has been set for May 24th.
