Alabama police are appealing to the public in an effort to identify a woman who is wanted on child endangerment charges.
According to reports, officers responded to calls about a drug-fueled mother who walked out of DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa shortly before 11 a.m. on Tuesday. The woman left her newborn baby behind. The child reportedly had cocaine and opium in its system.
The woman allegedly left the hospital with two black males and has a large tattoo in the middle of her chest.
Investigators have filed charges of “chemical endangerment for exposing a child to an environment in which controlled substances are produced or distributed,” ABC 3340 reported.
Anyone with information about the situation can contact Tuscaloosa County Crime Stoppers at 205-752-7867 (STOP) or text “Tusc” along with your tip to 274637 (CRIMES). A cash reward will be offered to anyone with information that leads to an arrest.
