STREATOR, Ill. -- An 11-month-old boy reported missing in Streator is back home.

But the child's mother, who was taken against her will, was not with him.

24-year-old Kayla Stratton was with a friend Friday night when their car was run off the road.

Police say she was pulled out of the vehicle by 33-year-old Clarence Merritte, her child's father.

The two have dated on and off for three years, and have a history of problems.

The child is in the custody of his grandparents.
