WAYNESBORO, GA ( WJBF) — Investigators said 27-year-old Travis Griffin took baby A’hmuad Griffin and climbed through a window and then took the child through a hole in the fence to get away.

“My sister just yelled he ran off and jumped out the window with the baby,” the baby’s mother Tamia Cooper said.

It all happened around 10′ o clock Monday night at the Burke Stone Place Apartments in Waynesboro.

“When he took him, he only had a onesie to my knowledge. No hat. No socks. I’m like oh he’s really cold out here. I’m afraid he could get colic or get sick. I’m just really worried about that,” Tamia Cooper said.

Tamia Cooper says she was up all night searching for her son.

“I’ve literally been jumping up and roaming the parking lot. I’ve been out here all night looking in the woods myself after the police left because I have to find him,” Cooper said.

The search ended around noon Tuesday when A’hmuad was found and brought to the Burke County Sheriff’s Office by a family member.

Cooper reunited with her baby boy.

“He’s happy.. very happy. If you talk with him, he’ll laugh and smile with you and play. He’s very playful.”

Travis Griffin was taken into custody.
