PAROWAN, Utah (KSTU) -- The Utah Highway Patrol said a man suspected of kidnapping two young girls in California was arrested just before 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

The man, 24-year-old Joshua Adle, was taken into custody without incident along with his parents, according to UHP.

The two girls, an 18-month-old and an 8-month-old, were found unharmed by UHP in the vehicle.

UHP said a trooper was able to identify Adle's father and identified Adle during a traffic stop in Parowan, Utah, which is 22 miles northeast of Cedar City and 72 miles northeast of St. George.

According to the Riverside Police Department, the girls are 18-month-old Darla and 8-month-old Emma Yonko.

Police said the girls were taken by Adle Tuesday night after a physical and verbal domestic altercation between the victims' mother and Adle, her live-in boyfriend.

They suspected Adle was taking the girls to Michigan and said he took the girls' legal identification documents and other items.
