The Mansfield Police Department reports a woman is in custody and an Amber Alert has been canceled after an infant was reported missing on Wednesday evening.
The 10-day-old infant, referred to as "Baby Partin" by the Mansfield Police Department, was taken by her mother, Mandy Jaynes. According to the Ohio Attorney General's office, the 38-year-old Jaynes is a known drug addict and the baby was believed to be in danger.
The incident happened in the 1200 block of Woodville Road in Mansfield. Authorities later gave information regarding a car that ended up not being connected.
Police later stated that the infant was not abducted, but was possibly in need of urgent medical attention. Since her birth, Baby Partin had not had a medical assessment done as she was born at her mother’s residence.
Jaynes and her baby daughter were found at around 8:30 p.m. near the area of I-71 and U.S. Route 30. Baby Partin was released to Richland County Children’s Services, while Jaynes is currently in custody pending further investigation.
