AMW Recovery #49;
Apr 10, 2007
Viewers Come Through For Heartbroken Dad
Beth Peterson -- a mother who Marshals say snatched her daughter from her ex-boyfriend, Brian Faber's, arms and sped away -- was featured on AMW for just 15 seconds of shame.
But, that was all it took for viewers in Texas to come forward with the information that ultimately led to her arrest and the recovery of missing baby Jocelyn Faber.
Now, Brian Faber can finally get to know his daughter again and hug her without fear that she will be snatched.
U.S. Marshals Find Baby In Texas
After the AMW airing in March 2007, two tips were called in by viewers pinpointing Beth Peterson near Dallas, Texas.
US Marshals from Sherman interviewed the tipsters and were able to identify Beth's mother's boyfriend.
That information led to a hotel where federal investigators went on Tuesday, April 10th.
When deputies showed the front desk operator at the hotel the pictures of Beth, Jocelyn and Beth's mother, the clerk identified them immediately.
Apparently the trio was living there and they had managed to alienate the hotel staff with their annoying requests.
The clerk led Marshals to the hotel room.
When Marshals knocked, Peterson came to the door and was arrested.
Deputies say Peterson did not go quietly, she screamed when seeing authorities and denied her true identity.
Little Jocelyn Faber, now 2 years old, was recovered safely.
She was reunited with her father Brian Faber later that evening.
