A missing child is found and taken into custody after a DPS trooper stopped a vehicle for speeding about six miles west of Vega.

Officials say after pulling the car over, the trooper was given conflicting stories by the driver and passenger.

It was finally revealed that the passenger was a missing or endangered child out of Arizona.

The male driver, identified as 25-year-old Roy Eddie Sweatt Jr. was booked into the Oldham County Sheriff's Department for Harboring a Runaway Child.

CPS took custody of the juvenile pending the child's mother's arrival to Texas.
