A Lincoln-Lemington woman who was placed on the Allegheny County Sheriff Department's “Most Wanted” list of fugitives was arrested on Wednesday as she rested on a living room couch with her infant granddaughter, sheriff's Sgt. Douglas Clark said.

Danyell Moore, 38, was placed on the list after a bench warrant was issued for incidents in October involving her 10-year-old son, Clark said. The boy was placed in the custody of his grandmother after he told school officials that his mother had disappeared the night before, Clark said.

Moore also is accused of taking the boy without his grandmother's knowledge, prompting her to file a missing persons report, Clark said. The boy was returned unharmed four days later.

Deputies made the arrest after receiving a tip Wednesday morning that Moore could be found in a home on Meadow Avenue in Larimer, Clark said.
