Jaime Martini has been found after her newborn was suffering from a life-threatening medical condition and was in need of hospitalization. Snohomish County officials ended an Amber Alert for the baby girl born in Mill Creek.
The baby, Annabelle Martini, was found safe Saturday morning and was taken by her 20-year-old mother.
The mother had last been seen Friday morning at The Mill at Mill Creek apartment complex in the 1100 block of Mill Creek Boulevard.
Police say they received dozens of leads from people calling in then finally, around 2 am, federal law enforcement showed up to a house on the Tulalip Reservation and found Martini and her newborn safe inside.
The baby was listed in satisfactory condition and the mother in stable condition.
Mill Creek police say Martini delivered the baby around 6:30 a.m. Friday at the Mill Creek apartment complex with the help of a midwife. The midwife called 911 to report the baby was having difficulty breathing and was not responsive. Police were dispatching an aid car but canceled it when Jaimie Martini said she was taking the baby to a hospital at the insistence of the midwife. However, she and the baby did not check in at any area hospitals.
Police believe Jamie Martini’s aunt may have picked her and the baby up from the apartment complex. Police were in contact with the aunt, but she was not cooperating with them.
Police say Martini does not live at the Mill Creek apartment where she gave birth. Officials have not said whose residence it is.
