Authorities said Daniel and Kristen were arrested on charges of obstruction of justice. Daniel is additionally charged with domestic battery.

Last week, a Silver Alert was issued for Bryson, who was last seen leaving his grandmother’s home in Ohio with his mother, Kristen, in a white 2015 Chevrolet Suburban belonging to Servant Leader’s Foundation in Kokomo.

His father, Daniel, is a former Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle.

Wright said Bryson showed up at her home with a black eye and swollen face.

After he and his mom left Wright’s home, authorities said Wright called the police with concerns.

Shortly after leaving the house, ISP said the vehicle Kristen was driving was pulled over by the Garfield Heights Police Department in Ohio, but Bryson was not in the car.

According to Indiana State Police, Daniel and Kristen Muir agreed to bring Bryson to meet with ISP investigators at the Peru Post on June 21.

The agreement was to meet at 12 p.m. At approximately 11 a.m., police said the Muirs backed out of the arrangement.
