Delaware County authorities announced that a child is back in protective custody after an Amber Alert was issued for the young girl after she was taken by her parents.

DHS officials said Ronald Altaffer and China Prater of Grove were not supposed to have custody of their 8-month-old girl, Carolinn. Delaware County Sheriff's deputies were trying to bring Carolinn into protective custody, but the Altaffers took off with her.

Authorities say Carolinn is malnourished, but is in the hospital being treated.
