The  infant boy who was the subject of an Amber Alert has been found safe inside a South Everett apartment on Friday afternoon, according to Everett police.

The Amber Alert was triggered on Thursday night; police asked the public to be on the lookout for the child and his 31-year-old mother.

Police said they located the infant’s mother with the child in the apartment in the 100 block of West Casino Road. The baby was evaluated by Everett fire/medics, then taken to a local hospital, police said.

ORIGINAL POST:

A missing newborn baby who police say was in desperate need of medical attention has been found in Everett.

The boy, who is 18 days old, was found in an apartment on West Casino Road, said Everett police Lt. John DeRousse. Details about what led police to the apartment and information about the baby’s health have not been released.

Police have been searching for the newborn’s mother, Roshell Turner. The 31-year-old woman gave birth to the child in an Everett motel room on Jan. 27, police said.

DeRousse said he was unsure whether Turner had been located.

Until today, there is no record of the child ever receiving medical care. Police say there have been concerns about the baby’s safety because Turner has been known to use methamphetamine. Turner has an extensive history with Child Protective Services because several of her other children are in state custody.

The Amber Alert was issued on Thursday night.
