Bexar County authorities say a 20-year-old mother used the Internet to solicit anyone willing to abduct her son from her estranged boyfriend.
Authorities say Lisa Gonzales posted a message several weeks ago on the social networking site MySpace offering 500 dollars for the abduction of her son.
Her ad was answered on Saturday by 27-year-old Rosita Ybanez and 31-year-old Reynaldo Galvan.
Authorities say the duo arranged to meet with Gonzales at a restaurant, and on Saturday night, they snatched the two-year-old boy from the home of his father.
Bexar County sheriff's Sergeant Russell McWhorter says investigators traced the child to Gonzales within a few hours. He was uninjured except for a bruise on his thigh.
The suspects face felony charges of agreeing to abduct a child in exchange for compensation.
The baby's father, Vernardo Morales, says he plans to seek legal custody of the two-year-old known as Junior and the couple's one-year-old child.
