(ONN) Authorities say a Circleville baby is safe after being taken by her mother's boyfriend.

It happened Thursday night when Circleville Police say the boyfriend of the baby's mother, 25-year-old Scotty Jones, forced the child's mother out of the car and drove off with the child inside.

Officers say the child was dropped off at an undisclosed location last night, and the mother picked her up shortly after midnight. Jones was still on the run early Friday and police believe he may have been heading for Chillicothe.

He was last seen driving a maroon 1994 Buick Century with temporary tags.
