Baby found safe after Amber Alert issued in northwest Arkansas, authorities seek father

WINSLOW, Ark. -- Authorities in northwest Arkansas are searching for a man who is accused of attacking the mother of his infant child then fleeing with the baby.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says the 2-month-old infant was later dropped off unharmed at her grandmother's house, but the suspect, 38-year-old Danny Trent Barrows, is missing.

Authorities say Barrows stabbed the baby's mother in the leg and struck her with his fists before leaving with the baby on Monday night. The disappearance of the baby prompted an Amber Alert but it was canceled Tuesday morning after the child was found safe.

The sheriff's office says the baby has since been reunited with her mother.
