A missing 11-month-old baby has been found safe after an Amber Alert.

Police have not yet released details of where she was recovered.

Officers say the baby girl was taken from the area of the I-94 Service Drive and Moross by her biological mother, Markita Dupree. The girl and her mother disappeared when the baby was being taken to the doctor for a check up.

Officials say the baby's foster mother was driving the two of them, when Dupree asked to be dropped off. 

Police say the 33-year-old went to kiss the baby, Savanna Wreford, goodbye, grabbed her and ran away. She is believed to be on foot.

They were last seen around 4:00 p.m.

Wreford was last seen wearing a pink and white jacket with grey pants with flowers. She suffers from sickle-cell anemia and needs life saving medications.

Dupree was wearing a pink hoodie and black jacket, with blue jeans and black boots. She is 5'6" and weighs about 130 pounds.

Officers say Dupree has talked about leaving Detroit.
