Wendi Bartell, the Hastings mother who fled in June with her son to avoid sharing custody of him, is out of jail and wants her son back. In June, Bartell was scheduled to give custody of her son Timber to his Canadian father, Danny Dimm. When Dimm arrived in Hastings to pick up his boy, though, Wendi was nowhere to be found. She had driven west, eventually ending up at a women’s shelter in South Dakota, where she was found in August.
