US Coast Guard rescues abducted 3-year-old boy

The U.S. Coast Guard this morning rescued a 3-year-old boy who was abducted by his father in Brevard County.

Two cutters and a helicopter converged on the sailboat where Luke Finch was being held by his father, Paul Martikainen of Palm Bay, police said.

The boy is now on the Coast Guard Cutter Crocodile, which is expected to arrive at Fort Myers Beach at 7 p.m. The father is still on the sailboat, which is being towed to shore.

Also from the previous news article!!!! affraid

A court-appointment supervisor, who was monitoring the visit because of previous allegations of child abuse, left Martikainen and Luke at the park at about 12:30 p.m. while he ate lunch at a restaurant located across the street.

When the supervisor returned, he couldn't find the child or Martikainen.

Luke's car seat had been removed from the supervisor's vehicle, and Martikainen's green Ford Explorer was gone.

Daring Coast Guard rescue brings missing boy home to mom



FORT MYERS BEACH — Luke Finch ate ice cream and sausage and all of their pizza crackers.

He spent the ride to shore standing beside the men in blue, and even got to steer the ship, just for a little bit. The blond boy then fell asleep in the arms of a detective.

Then, as the Coast Guard cutter Crocodile approached the dock, the 3-year-old boy clapped his hands.

"I'm coming, Mommy," he said. "I'm coming, Mommy."

As the sun set on the horizon, Christa Finch ran up the gangway and wrapped her arms around her son, their 2½ day ordeal finally over at 5:43 p.m. Tuesday.
