MILL CREEK, Wash. -- An Amber Alert was canceled by officials Saturday morning after police located the newborn baby at the infant's mother's home in Tulalip around 7:30 a.m. 

Both mother and baby were transported to a hospital in satisfactory condition. 

An alert was issued Friday evening for 20-year-old Jaime Marie Martini, a mother who ran off with her very sick newborn baby, officials said.

Police said the infant, Annabelle Martini, was born in a Mill Creek apartment early Friday morning with a life threatening medical condition and is in need of medical attention. 

The midwife assisting with the birth called 911 to summon medical help as the baby was having difficulty breathing and was gray in color, but the mother canceled the aid unit and decided to try to take the child to a local hospital herself, said Ian Durkee with Mill Creek Police. 

"They never arrived at any local hospital, either in Snohomish County or in King County," Durkee said. "At this point we don't know where they're at and that's why we're trying to locate them.".

"She was transported by an aunt and the aunt is no longer with her. She was allegedly dropped off at a hospital but that hospital has had no contact with her, so we don't know of any vehicle that she might have access too," Durkee said Friday.

Police had interviewed Martini's aunt, but said she wasn't very helpful with the investigation.


It is not immediately clear whether police will file charges against Martini.

I thought about posting this story last night when they were looking for her.  Thankfully they have both been found and are now receiving care.  

This story contains the background information. 

Should the midwife insisted on the ambulance transporting the mother and newborn when she realized they needed medical intervention?  

Should charges be filed against the mother or should her own medical situation be considered given the fact that she had just delivered her baby?
