Turn yourself in: Cops to Utah mom


Cobourg police made a plea to a mother, who investigators believe took her five-year-old son from her ex-husband, to turn herself in.

"I want to work this thing out. I want to hear her side of the story," said lead investigator in the case Const. Cindy Reeves.

"I'm not taking anyone's side in particular, we just want Jonathan to come home safe. The sooner the better it is for her."

Kimberlie March and her boyfriend Robert Argyle are alleged to have violently clubbed her ex-husband Bill repeatedly on the head as they took five-year-old Jonathan July 22.

March and Argyle live in Utah.

Investigators were encouraged Friday when March phoned Cobourg police to tell them Jonathan was safe and she was seeking legal advice.

"All the tips we've had have put them on (Hwy.) 401 westbound or in the Mississauga area," said Reeves.

One tip led police to Algonquin provincial park where the OPP established the tip as a case of mistaken identity.

Reeves said the couple is thought to be driving a car with Utah licence plates, making it conspicuous to motorists.
