CAVALIER, N.D. - A woman wanted in California for parental kidnapping is awaiting extradition  in Pembina County after being arrested trying to cross the Canadian border with her two children.

Rene Snider, 36, currently is being held in the Pembina County Jail in Cavalier. She had an extradition hearing Nov. 7 to send her back to Merced, Ca., where she is wanted on felony parental kidnapping charges.

She was stopped at the border Nov. 4 by Canadian authorities.

Snider is accused of kidnapping her children, Lyza Martinez, 11, and Drea Martinez, 12. She failed to return the children to their father, Jose Martinez, on Oct. 30. Three days later, she was arrested more than 1,800 miles away from Merced.
