BOZEMAN, Mont. – State investigators are joining the search for a Butte woman and her newborn son.
A warrant is still out for 29-year-old Michelle Yallup. Police accused her of being high on meth when she delivered a baby in the Anaconda Hospital last month.
Hours later, she walked out with her newborn, and officials say that baby boy could be in danger.
At the time, we asked why the state didn’t pull out all the stops to find her. We were told Yallup has custody of the baby, so they could not issue a state-wide Amber Alert. Instead, they posted a limited advisory to neighboring counties, which ran out 48 hours after Yallup took off.
