BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say an Alabama man kidnapped his daughter on her way to school and took her to Amsterdam.

Police have issued a warrant for 29-year-old Christian Hoffman's arrest on a kidnapping charge after he took his 4-year-old daughter, Dianna Hoffman, from his ex-wife's Birmingham home on Tuesday and drove her to the Atlanta airport. Police say Hoffman then flew with his daughter to Amsterdam, where he was later caught.

Police say the girl is in the custody of Amsterdam authorities and is fine. The suspect is in custody.

Federal charges are pending against Hoffman.
