Virginia Amber Alert Over After Infant, Woman Found in Maryland, Police Say

Police say the baby's mother has been arrested

Virginia State Police have canceled an Amber Alert after a 6-week-old baby "in extreme danger" has been found safe in Maryland.

Liz Khatun, an infant with brown eyes and short brown hair, was last seen in Annandale, Virginia, with her mother, Flora Khatun, state police said Wednesday.

A few hours after police issued the Amber Alert, Flora Khatun, 31, was found with the baby in the 3500 block of Dean Drive in Chillum and arrested, police said.

Fairfax County police said the baby is in good condition and is in the county's custody.

Khatun will be extradited to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center, where she will be served with a parental abduction warrant.

Khatun had been seen at a Family Protective Services office in Annandale on Tuesday, police said. Police said she was supposed to turn over Liz but went to the office without the infant. She left before police arrived.
