ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A missing mother and baby have returned to central Florida after working out an agreement with child welfare officials.

Police have been searching for 21-year-old Jessica “Elizabeth” McCreery and 7-month-old Penelope Hogarth after visiting the home they shared with 46-year-old David Hogarth. He was arrested this week on drug charges after police found a grow house inside the home. Police said Hogarth’s comments made them believe the two were in danger.

Police said the child has never been under the care of a doctor and was not born in a hospital.

Attorney Mark O’Mara told the Orlando Sentinel the baby was examined by a medical professional after flying back on a commercial airline and appears healthy. He said the mother is not facing any charges.
