A 7-week-old baby girl believed to be in danger was found safe Monday in Aloha, Ore., according to the King County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies with the Washington County Sheriff's Office found the infant named Lillian and her mother, Trina P. Curry, 33, at a relative's apartment after receiving an anonymous tip.
Authorities took the baby into protective custody and Curry was arrested for resisting deputies when they tried to take the baby, according to Sgt. Cindi West with the King County Sheriff's Office. The baby is back in Washington and is doing "fine," she said.
The father, Quandra R. Powell, 39, was arrested in Skyway Monday on warrants after deputies received an anonymous tip.
Police learned that Curry used a fake name at the hospital; when officials learned her real name, they discovered her seven other children were removed by the state's Child Protective Services due to abuse or neglect and mental health issues, according to West.
CPS received a “pick-up” order for the baby but police and CPS officials had been unable to locate Curry or Lillian, according to West.
