SEATTLE — A baby that the King County sheriff’s office says was endangered has been located safe in Oregon.

The sheriff’s office said the Washington County sheriff’s office received a tip and deputies found the baby and mother early Monday at a relative’s house in Aloha.

The King County sheriff’s office said the mother’s seven other children have been removed by Child Protective Services due to abuse, neglect and mental health issues.

The mother gave birth in July under an assumed name. When officials learned her real name welfare workers went to pick up the baby but couldn’t locate the mother or baby girl.
