The West Mifflin couple allegedly took their 7-week-old son from a Pittsburgh hospital's emergency room on Sept. 26 before he could be examined by a doctor. Hospital staff had reported the baby had bruising consistent with finger marks and were concerned his injuries were the result of abuse.
The couple and their son were found around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in Marshall County, Tennessee, after federal agents received a tip about their whereabouts.
