A wild international search for an Orthodox Jewish mom turned punk rocker, who vanished five months ago with her 3-year-old daughter, ended when she was detained early Thursday at LaGuardia Airport, authorities said.
Rochel Kreiman, 23, had fled England and her estranged husband, Moshe Yitzchok, with her daughter, a source said.
A British judge ordered her to return the kid.
When word surfaced she might be with an uncle upstate, Kreiman fled again, to Canada.
Then, someone using her passport number booked five flights out of Toronto, triggering alarms. “She was throwing decoy flights all over the place,” the source said. “She never boarded any of them.
It was like the movie ‘Catch Me If You Can.’”
