EUGENE, Ore. --- A Eugene woman was arrested early Sunday morning for running off with her baby after the infant was removed from her care.
Deputies said it all started in Deschutes County when deputies responded to a domestic dispute in the Deschutes River Woods area.
They say 30-year-old Amber Skeele and another woman got into a fight with the child's father and then they fled.
This was after the Oregon Department of Human Services had removed the child from her care because of a recent arrest involving child neglect, which is still under investigation.
After searching the area, Deschutes County issued a statewide all-points bulletin broadcast in an attempt to locate the vehicle for the safety of the child.
Around 12:30 Sunday morning a Lane County deputy and an Oregon State Police officer spotted Skeele and the other woman with the child in the Eugene area and arrested Skeele.
Skeele is in jail and is being charged with Custodial Interference, Burglary and Contempt of Court.
Police say the child was returned safely to his father.
