 GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- A man arrested in Montana after fleeing British
Columbia with his 3-year-old son has reversed himself and says he will willingly
return to Canada.
   Robert Barnett initially requested extradition and bail hearings after he was
 arrested on Nov. 16 for allegedly kidnapping Alvin Barnett during a supervised
visit.
   Barnett was arrested in Whitefish after a resident there heard about an Amber
 Alert issued for the boy.
   The Great Falls Tribune reports Barnett faces charges in Canada of abduction
 and theft of more than $5,000.
   Barnett's attorney said during a hearing Tuesday that his client had reconsidered
 his opposition to extradition.
   Federal public defender Hank Branom says Barnett believes he has a legitimate
 claim to his child's custody and the matter must be resolved in Canada.
