WHITE CLOUD - Authorities with the White Cloud Police Department say they've taken the mother of a missing 4-month-old into custody along with her boyfriend, following a day-long search for the infant which still continued late Tuesday evening.

Brittany Rich and Matthew Bradley were located and arrested in the Big Rapids area.  As of 10:15 p.m., police had still not located missing infant Natallya Rich.

Police are now focused on locating a woman named Nicole, who police have indicated may have the missing 4-month-old.  Police are urging the woman to contact them without fear of any repercussions.

The 4-month-old, Natallya Rich, was last seen in Bradley's care on Saturday, according to the infant's grandmother.

Relatives say Bradley was first seen wandering around the White Cloud area early Tuesday prior to his arrest in the Big Rapids area.  Bradley did have a warrant out for his arrest on an unrelated matter to the infant's disappearance.
