Jeannette Funnen, 32, and Daemon Klingensmith, 23, were found in Tennessee on Tuesday.

An 8-week-old baby taken from UPMC Children’s Hospital by his parents five days ago has been found.

Ambrose Klingensmith was found with his parents, 32-year-old Jeannette Funnen, 32, and Daemon Klingensmith, 23, West Mifflin police said.

The parents are in custody and the baby is in the care of a doctor, police said.

The family was found in Marshall County, Tenn., around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police began a manhunt for the family after the parents took the baby from the hospital’s emergency room on Sept. 26 before he could be examined by a doctor. Hospital staff reported the baby had bruising consistent with finger marks and were concerned his injuries were the result of abuse.

Authorities said at the time of the disappearance that Funnen had two other children removed from her custody in past and has a history of suicide attempts and providing authorities with a “false narrative” of her family history.

Police said the parents will be extradited back to Pennsylvania.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
