(WVLT) - Authorities say a Roane County infant, missing for the past week, is now safe and with her father.
Police say they located ten month-old Justice Couch in Knoxville early this morning.
The child's paternal grandmother tells us police found the baby with her mother, Summer Anfinson, and that police took Anfinson into custody.
The grandmother also says the baby was taken to children's hospital to be checked out, only as a precaution.
The grandmother says the father was in the process of getting emergency custody of the child when Anfinson took the child.
