This is a serious issue. You really should consult with a local attorney. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation.

I can be reached at 714-442-1522 if you have further questions. Before accepting any answer as a final answer, you should have your case reviewed by an attorney. No attorney on Avvo has read your paperwork and therefore cannot give a completely valid answer suited to your case.

Call the District Attorney's office, the Child Abduction Unit. If you don't have any results, contact an attorney to make the call for you. There are parental kidnapping laws. Contact an experienced family law attorney.
