According to court records, Armstrong allowed the father of her baby, Christian Jackson, 24, around their daughter even though a protection order against him prohibits that, court records show.

Jackson has no custody rights to his daughter, according to police.

He remains at large on the abduction charge, police said Monday.

The infant’s abduction from her grandmother’s house on Hollingsworth Way prompted authorities to issue an Amber Alert over the weekend.

The baby was later found safe, but police are still on the lookout for her father.

Jackson was reportedly driving a 2015 red Toyota Prius with Ohio plates JIY7198.

He is described as 5′8″ and 145 pounds.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Forest Park Police Department: 513-595-5220.
