British children, abducted by Thai mother, reunited with father in Pattaya

PHUKET: British school children Annie and Aleena Day, abducted by their Thai mother in June while on holiday in Thailand, have been reunited with their father in Pattaya.

"I've got them. They're with me now," a tearful Robert Day told Pattaya radio station Fabulous 103FM late Friday night.

Onwarat Gamlem, the 36-year-old non-custodial mother of the children, was arrested at a Bangkok apartment on Friday morning, Day told the radio station.

She was wanted on a nationwide warrant for charges of child abduction after she disappeared with the two girls on June 1, the agreed date she was to return the children to Day (story here).

"They [police] said come to Chon Buri, we've got your children here and your wife has been arrested," Day said.
