COLLINS, Mo. -- The St. Clair County Sheriff's Office arrested a Bolivar man who they say ran off with his 10-month-old baby Monday afternoon.

The sheriff's office and Missouri Highway Patrol issued an advisory after they said that Johnnie Adams, 41, ran into the woods with his child near the Pilot Travel Center east of Collins.

Adams and the child were found near Collins Tuesday morning. The patrol says Adams has legal custody of the baby, but the child needed medical attention.

Adams is in the St. Clair County Jail.
