Man accused of kidnapping his daughter

TIFT CO., GA (WALB) - A man and his mother are in the Tift County Jail Tuesday night accused of kidnapping his daughter.

Tifton Police said Scott Mattos picked up the 2-year old from her mother for a visit last week then refused to return her.

Investigators said he planned to take the little girl to California even though he has no legal parental rights.

They tracked Mattos and his mother, Carla Hubbard to a Valdosta motel where they were arrested.

The little girl is fine.
