Authorities say the 24-year-old mother failed to return her 1-year-old daughter to social service workers Wednesday afternoon. Police asked the public for help in locating the two and said the mother may intend to harm the child.
Meanwhile, a citizen in Munster, Ind., called police Wednesday night 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.
