A Colorado woman and her son were found in Mexico, after disappearing from their home in Brighton more than two weeks ago.

Authorities found Paula Knapp, 36, and her son Casey, 11, in Juarez. Detectives contacted federal authorities at the border, who caught Paula Knapp as she crossed back into El Paso, Texas Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators said Paula Knapp led them to a hotel in Juarez, where Casey Knapp was found in a room with Daryl Robb. Robb is Paula Knapp's boyfriend.

Paula was arrested on an outstanding nationwide warrant for a child dependency case.

Robb was arrested on an outstanding felony warrant for sexual exploitation of a child.

Casey Knapp is in the custody of welfare services in El Paso.

The mother and son had been missing from their Brighton home since Sept. 1.
