The baby, Hazel Richards, is safe, according to WGME.

Investigators said the baby was brought to Maine by her maternal grandmother, Melanie E. Wever, 49, from Indiana and apparently Wever didn’t have permission from both parents to bring the child here.

The child’s mother flew from Indiana to Maine to get the girl and reported her missing from North Yarmouth on Wednesday.
