    Fugitive Lisa Lavigne is on the run with her 12-year-old son.

    A 12-year-old boy and his mother, subjects of a cross-country search, were found Thursday in Tijuana, Mexico, San Diego authorities confirmed.

    Lisa Marie Lavigne, 49, left New York ten days earlier with her son, Tyler. A warrant was issued for her arrest on suspicion of kidnapping.

    U.S. Marshals were alerted to the possibility that the mother and son could be headed to San Diego.

    On Thursday, around 4:30 p.m., the pair were found in the Unisur Shopping Mall parking lot in the Mesa de Otay section of Tijuana.

    LaVigne appeared to be intoxicated at the time of arrest, Baja California State Police officials reported.

    She was moved to the U.S., taken to Las Colinas Women's Detention Center in San Diego County. 

    Meanwhile, Tyler spent the night with Child Protective services.

    LaVigne was scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
