PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. - A 7-year-old Paulding County boy is back with family after the boy's father disappeared with him last month in Temple, investigators said.

William Hoover turned himself in Friday with his son, Josh.

Deputies believe Hoover lied to gain custody of his son. Josh had been living with his grandmother since his mother died.

Investigators believe Hoover took Josh to be with his father in North Carolina.

Hoover is charged with custody interference.
