According to Sergeant Wauford of the Toledo Police, Margaret and her husband Fred were afraid that Saginaw children services would take their baby from them. So a few hours later, the couple left the hospital with their baby in tow.

The hospital originally reported the dual disappearance of mother and child as an abduction. Saginaw authorities found the family at 7 p.m. on July 21.
