The Branson Police Department was notified that the Arkansas State Police arrested John Fant, who is charged with abducting his two young daughters on Thursday night in Branson. The arrest was made in Boone County, Ark. Farrah Fant and Delilah Fant are in protective custody.
Fant is charged with two counts of interference with custody, for which he could get four-year prison sentences if he's convicted.
Descriptions of the suspect, the girls and the vehicle, a 2002 Toyota, were circulated widely by regional media. A concerned citizen in Arkansas contacted a law enforcement agency after seeing Fant's vehicle. That call led directly to Fant's arrest and the recovery of the two girls.
