FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- The baby at the center of an Amber Alert has been found safe.

The baby was found safe Tuesday morning, according to the Washington County Sheriff's spokesman Kelly Cantrell.

Ivy Kay Barrows, 2-months-old, was taken Monday night (Aug. 13) by her father, Danny Trent Barrows, 38, after a domestic violence incident in Winslow.

The baby was dropped off at Danny Barrows' mother's house in the Elkins area by a third party, Cantrell said. She is now back with her mother.

Danny Trent Barrows is still at large. He was last seen last seen driving a 2005 brown Dodge Stratus ARVL/3000005 possibly with a disabled tag, though the tag is believed to be fictitious. He was wearing a tan t-shirt, khaki pants and possibly a ball cap.

Sheriff's investigators said they believe Barrows is still somewhere in Northwest Arkansas.

Washington County sheriff's investigators announced the baby was found safe about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday (Aug. 14). They canceled the Amber Alert at 7:51 a.m.

Police say Barrows was involved with a physical altercation with the child's mother in which he stabbed her in the leg and severely beat her with his fist, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Barrows then threatened to kill the mother and child with the knife, holding the knife to the baby's body, Arkansas State Police say.

He then left the mother on the side of the road and drove off with the infant, the Washington County Sheriff's Office told 5NEWS.

A bystander found the mother and took her to a safe area where she was then taken to a nearby hospital and released.
