2-month-old boy found safe, 4 arrested

Missing Harrison infant found safe

HARRISON, OH (FOX19) - The 2-month-old baby that police say was taken by his biological mother has been found safe and four people are under arrest.

Police say the baby, Cobain Reidmiller, was found Friday in a building in the 3400 block of Cheviot Avenue. That’s about 15 miles from the Harrison home from which the child was taken.

A source told FOX19 NOW the baby, his mother Kelly Schmid, father Clint Reidmiller, 43-year-old Crystal McDaniel and 43-year-old Randall Burton were found hiding in the bathroom.

Police responded to the address because of a tip, but when they arrived on the scene no one answered. When officers were getting ready to leave they heard a baby cry, broke down the door and found the baby and suspects hiding, the source said.

The baby’s biological mother does not have custody due to alleged drug use and the baby’s father doesn’t have custody of his son because of his alleged violent tendencies, Harrison police said.

Cobain was taken from the 200 block of Hill Street around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

“Somehow, yesterday, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. grandma left for work. The child was unsupervised and mom left a note, taking the baby," Lt. Terry Lowry said.

The note explained the mother was, “pushed into this situation," he said.

Police requested an Amber Alert, but the Ohio State Highway Patrol denied the request, saying it didn’t meet specific criteria.

The child is in custody of Hamilton County Job and Family Services.

The Harrison Police Department is handling the investigation.
