PORTLAND, Ore. - A mother and baby that police had been looking for because they felt the infant was endangered were found Friday evening.

Portland police and their Child Abuse Team had asked the public to be on the lookout for a 7-month-old baby who might have been suffering from a serious medical problem.

The baby, Amirah Conteh, was believed to be with her mother, 20-year-old Musu Conteh, in North or Northeast Portland.

Police say media exposure helped them track the pair down. Someone called the Department of Human Services hotline and gave them information about the whereabouts of the mother and child.

Police and medical personnel responded and the baby was given medical attention for the unspecified health issue.

Police did not release any further information.
