NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A 4-month-old baby reported missing was found in Northwest Miami-Dade, Friday afternoon.

Officials had issued a Be On the Lookout for the missing infant, named Knowledge Croskey, who had been last seen in October. The child was thought to be in the company of his mother, 41-year-old Heather Croskey.

They said they are 99.9 percent sure this is the child they were searching for.

The baby has reportedly been missing since Oct. 10, 2017.

Everyone appears to be OK.

The baby is now in the care of the Department of Children and Families.

The Jeep was later towed from the scene. There is no word as to who was driving it before it was left on the side of the road.

Police said, as of Friday night, the mother was nowhere to be found.

Investigators said she and the 4-month-old had been last seen near Southwest 187th Terrace and 113th Avenue in Southwest Miami-Dade.
