The Arizona Republic said 9-month-old Fabian Aaron Smith was turned over to police after the woman caring for him saw television reports about the missing little boy. Investigators said they would cancel the bulletin once Fabian's identity was confirmed.
Fabian had been missing since early Friday when his mother was allegedly shot and wounded by an acquaintance who then took off with the child.
The suspect, 25-year-old Steven Lawson, was still at large, and Maricopa County sheriff's deputies warned he was considered armed and dangerous.
