Missing child found safe in Indiana

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee police say a child who vanished with his non-custodial mother has been found in Indiana.

Authorities say the 24-year-old mother failed to return her 1-year-old daughter to social service workers. Police asked the public for help Wednesday in locating the two and said the mother may intend to harm the child.

Meanwhile, a citizen in Munster, Ind., called police after noticing the child was not in a car seat. Officers stopped the vehicle, ran a check on the driver, which revealed the two were missing from Milwaukee. Police say the child was not harmed. The mother will be returned to Milwaukee to face possible charges.
