WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- State officials are referring charges against the man accused of taking a Wausau woman to Mexico in 2004.

The state Department of Criminal Investigation is referring charges of interfering with child custody and truancy against 31-year-old Freddie Ruiz. He's accused of taking then 15-year-old Connie McCallister to Mexico after she agreed to leave Wausau with him. McCallister told authorities she never intended to leave the country.

McCallister and her children returned to the US in December after she resurfaced after being missing for nine years.

Wausau police are not commenting any further on the investigation.
