The search for an endangered 7-week-old baby ended Monday after an anonymous tip to authorities.

Baby Lillian was born in Seattle in July, but discovered in Aloha, Oregon, after the Washington County Sheriff's Office received the call saying the mother and baby were staying with relatives.

The infant is now with Child Protective Services in Oregon. Her mother, Trina Curry, 33, was arrested for trying to stop deputies from taking the baby.

King County's Sheriff's deputies had been searching for the baby. Curry gave birth on July 17 and checked out under an assumed name from Highline Medical Center.

Lillian was Curry's eighth child. Detectives said Curry was not allowed to be with her seven other children based on allegations of abuse, neglect, and mental health issues.

The baby's father, Quandra Powell, is also a concern for law enforcement. The sheriff’s office said Powell has warrants out for his arrest for drug and parole violations.
