Cape Breton Regional Police were alerted early Wednesday morning that Terria Ann Lively was in the Sydney area.
Lively is not allowed to be on Cape Breton Island after she abducted her son last week and an amber alert was issued.
She is only allowed on the island to attend court.
Police located the woman and she was arrested for breach of her release order.
Lively appeared in Sydney Provincial court again Wednesday morning and was remanded to appear on Monday, July 4th.
