West Mifflin police told Channel 11 News they believe the 7-week-old is “at risk of harm or injury.”
The baby had been at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh for abdominal bruising consistent with child abuse, according to a criminal complaint.
Doctors determined there were “bruises consistent with finger marks” and that the injuries were “highly concerning with physical abuse.” They requested additional testing to determine how severe the internal injuries were.
However, his parents took off with him from the emergency room before he was examined.
They are believed to be traveling in a 2001 Buick Century with Pennsylvania license plate number LBD-6681. The car was last seen on Washington Road in Peters Township.
West Mifflin police said they were given information that they might be traveling to Florida.
Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts is asked to call the West Mifflin Police Department at 412-461-3125.
According to investigators, Funnen has had two other children removed from her custody in the past.
“Funnen has a history of providing a ‘false narrative’ regarding her family history, and has attempted to commit suicide during two pregnancies,” investigators said.
Both parents are now facing charges of endangering a child and obstruction.
An Amber Alert was not issued because the infant was not abducted.
