Mother will face charges in alleged baby abduction

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Authorities say a missing baby girl who was reportedly taken by her mother in Pittsburgh has been found.

The woman and child are identified as 31-year-old Micha Deshields and her 3-month-old daughter, Brenna Van Dusen.

Police say Deshields took her daughter around 6 p.m. Thursday after a domestic dispute. Investigators say she does not have custody of the child.

Pittsburgh authorities alerted officers throughout the city and surrounding communities to be on the lookout. Mother and daughter were found about three hours later.

Deshields was taken into custody and faces charges that include indirect criminal contempt.

Police say the father had a protection from abuse order against Deshields and a temporary custody order for the girl. His name was not released.
