WA Amber Alert canceled, baby safe

Posted: Updated:
MILL CITY, OR (KPTV/AP) -

An Amber Alert issued for a newborn baby in Mill Creek, WA has been canceled.

Details about where and how the child was found have not been released.

Police were searching overnight in Snohomish and King counties for the baby's mother and her brand new daughter, named Annabelle.

Annabelle, who was born at 4:30 a.m. Friday at a home in Mill Creek, about 25 miles north of Seattle, reportedly had breathing difficulties.

A Mill Creek Police spokesman said a midwife who assisted with the birth early Friday at an apartment called for a medic unit, saying the child's complexion was gray.

However, the 20-year-old mother, identified as Jaime Marie Martini, had canceled the aid call, saying she would take the infant to a hospital herself.

Martini then vanished, which prompted a regional Amber Alert that lasted throughout the night. 

The Amber Alert did not extend into the state of Oregon, as the mother and baby were not believed to be heading southbound from the area.
