Mother surrenders; son reunited with Gwinnett County father

The old saying is that a picture is worth a thousand words and a picture obtained exclusively by FOX 5 Atlanta might just say it all.

The photo shows 3-year-old Lane back in his father's arms for the first time in two years. FOX 5 News was there for their heartwarming reunion.

Authorities said Lane was taken by his mother, Chelsea Cullen, in the middle of the night back in June 2015. She had been on the run ever since then.

Cullen has claimed she was abused by her ex-husband, Michael Hambrick, which was the reason she gave for being on the run. Monday, Cullen turned herself into Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter.

Her surrender comes just over a month after authorities searched the Alabama home of her parents. Porter at the time said they did gather evidence at the home.

Cullen was charged with felony interference with custody. Her father was arrested last week and faces the same charges.

Porter said they will be investigating her allegation of abuse.
