The complaint alleges that Fitzgerald left the child’s mother in Nashville and demanded money from the boy's aunt for his return.
The release said Fitzgerald and Turner drove with the child to Southaven, Mississippi, and left the child at a Goodwill store.
Fitzgerald and Turner were found in Shelby County, Tennessee, on Monday.
