Vancouver police have located a 5-month-old baby that was considered endangered.
Police say they located Jaxon Smith and his mom Summer Smith at a home on West 19th Street in Vancouver. Summer Smith was arrested on outstanding warrants.
Police also arrested John Maxwell, who was at the original home where the baby was taken from. They say he had outstanding warrants.
Kasey McKernan was not at the home and he is still wanted by police.
Officials say on Nov. 27 Child Protective Services arrived at a home on the 1200 block of Northeast 104th to take custody of the child due to a court order.
Police said as CPS workers tried to remove the child, Kasey McKernan assaulted the CPS worker and took the child away in a pickup truck driven by the child's mother, Summer Smith.
On Thursday, police said they arrested Michael Grant Fuller for helping the couple and the baby hide from police.
Investigators turned to the public for help on Wednesday after attempting to find the child through the parent's friends and family.
The baby's grandmother told Fox 12 that the baby is not endangered and that Smith loves Jaxon and would never put him in any danger. She is simply afraid of losing her child.
She said that CPS was at the home to take the baby because Smith skipped out on her drug treatment meetings the previous week.
"Please don't be down on Summer. She wants to keep her baby and she's sorry for her past. She's scared, she's terrified, she just wants to keep her baby and she'll do anything in the world now. She's sorry and she knows she's blown it, but she is willing to go to treatment if she can just have her baby," said Vickie Anderson, Smith's stepmother.
Vancouver police located the black 1996 Chevrolet S-10 pickup which they say the couple used to get away from their Vancouver home.
It is unclear where they are currently and who they might be with, police said.
Investigators say charges are pending against McKernan and Smith.
The FBI is also assisting with this case.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of McKernan should contact the Vancouver Police Department Tip Line at 360-487-7399.
