Man arrested in connection to kidnapping of 9-month-old in Maryland

A 9-month-old baby that was reported missing in Maryland was found safe in Pennsylvania, according to Maryland State Police.

The report of the missing child led police to issue an Amber Alert for 9-month-old Brady Sellers shortly after 12 p.m. on Sunday. Sellers had last been seen in Grantsville, Maryland, with 35-year-old Keith Kyle.

Police said that Kyle assaulted his girlfriend in a restaurant parking lot in Grantsville and then drove off in his car with her daughter, Sellers.

Troopers from Maryland State Police responding to the assault attempted to stop Kyle from leaving, but he fled onto Interstate 68 and then took an exit heading toward Pennsylvania.

Around 12:50 p.m., police said they received a tip that Sellers was in a residence in Meyersdale, Pennsylvania, and found her in that location unharmed.

Police then identified the residence of Kyle’s parents, and found him there.

An arrest warrant for Kyle has charges of assault, kidnapping and home invasion. He is being held in Pennsylvania as a fugitive from Maryland and is pending extradition.
