Franklin County authorities say 20-year-old Khristina Wheeler, who left a court-ordered rehabilitation center in Alabama with her infant son in April, has been found in Texas. Franklin County officials say Wheeler, who was living in Russellville but is from Haleyville, was arrested during the weekend in Galveston, Texas, after local authorities received a tip.

Authorities say Wheeler's 5-week-old infant and her mother, Mary Susan Camp, also were at the residence in Texas.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said Wheeler is being held in the Galveston City Jail where she awaits extradition. Franklin County officials said Wheeler was arrested in November on methamphetamine charges.
