Cookeville infant 'safely recovered' in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Five-month-old Ronald Flanigan Cookeville, the focus of a statewide Endangered Child Alert for the past day, has been "safely recovered" in Memphis, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday afternoon.

No other information was given on how the infant was recovered in Memphis.

The infant is in protection of the DCS, the Cookeville Police Department told FOX13 News.

An Endangered Child Alert was issued late Monday on behalf of the Cookeville Police for the 5-month-old. TBI believed Ronald was in company of his parents Ronald Collins Jr. and Amanda Collins. All three were driving from Cookeville, which is 80 miles east of Nashville, to Memphis.

Cookeville Police said the infant was not turned over by the parents and did not know who turned over the baby to DCS.

No charges have been filed against the father or mother. It is unclear if the parents are in custody. Ronald Collins was considered armed and dangerous as there is are bond conditions in place that prohibit him from any contact with Amanda Collins and the baby.

Ronald and Amanda were possibly driving a gold 4-door 1999 Buick Park Avenue. The vehicle may be displaying a Tennessee temporary tag of H2283Y but the tag (H2283Y) does not match the vehicle.
