Sincere Skinner found, Nichon Skinner arrested for abduction, assault

A 5-year-old boy who was the subject of an Amber Alert in North Carolina was fond Thursday in Charles County, authorities say.

Maryland State Police officials say that Sincere Skinner had been taken by non-custodial father, 42-year-old Nichon Skinner, from Greensboro. Authorities in Maryland were alerted Thursday afternoon that Skinner had been charged in their state with child abduction and assault.

A short time later, troopers pulled Skinner over on Route 301 near Maryland State Route 6 in La Plata. During the traffic stop, state troopers, who were joined by La Plata Police officers and Charles County Sheriff's deputies, recovered Sincere and took Skinner into custody.

Skinner is awaiting extradition back to North Carolina and is being held without bail at the Charles County Detention Center.
