Amber Alert canceled after missing newborn is found alive
EVERETT, Wash. - An Amber Alert for a missing newborn baby has been canceled after the child was found alive Friday afternoon.
Authorities said the baby, who is just 18 days old, appears to be stable.
The Amber Alert was originally issued Thursday evening after police learned that the child's mother, 31-year-old Roshell Marie Turner, had given birth on Jan. 27 in a hotel room.
Police say Turner is a heavy methamphetamine user, and her child has potentially severe medical issues due to the drug use. Officials said they believed the child could be in "grave danger."
Authorities did not immediately disclose where the newborn was found, or whether the child was with its mother.
Child Protective Services has already removed numerous children from Turner's custody, according to police.
