Missing baby found safe in St. Paul

BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) — Police say a 2-month-old boy taken from his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn Park has been found safe in St. Paul.

Officers following up on a tip went to a house in St. Paul and were told a car leaving the house had the baby. Police stopped the car and found the baby Tuesday afternoon.

Brooklyn Park Deputy Chief Jeff Ankerfelt tells the Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/129pt7l) the baby appeared to be fine but was taken to a hospital to be checked.

A man and a woman were arrested. Ankerfelt says the woman was an acquaintance of the mother.

Authorities don’t know a possible motive.

The mother had called police at 6 a.m. to report her son missing from her apartment. She said she had last seen her child at 1 a.m.
