    West Mifflin police said they received a report shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday that Funner and Klingensmith left UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh with their son after they were informed he had injuries consistent with child abuse, according to a criminal complaint filed in the case.

    A medical report from the hospital said Ambrose had several bruises on his stomach consistent with finger marks, and the marks were “highly concerning for physical abuse.” The marks were described as a “patterned injury” that “was inflicted” and caused the infant “substantial pain.”

    The hospital asked West Mifflin police for help contacting Funner and Klingensmith because further testing was needed on Ambrose to check for internal injuries.

    Police tried multiple times to contact the couple, but weren’t successful.

    Police were informed by Children and Youth Services that Funner previously had an Emergency Protective Custody Order filed against her. According to the complaint, Funner had two other children removed from her care and custody, has a history of lying about her family history, and has attempted to commit suicide during two pregnancies.

    Grandparents claim parents didn’t abuse missing 7-week-old taken from hospital. FBI joins search: Reports

    The grandparents of a 7-week-old baby taken from a Pennsylvania hospital claim that the infant’s parents didn’t abuse the boy, but instead, fled because they were scared.

    Klingensmith’s mother, Kimberly, said that she doesn’t think the pair abused the baby and that they’re simply afraid that social services will take their baby away from them, according to 11News. The family said that Funnen’s 3-year-old son, Makias Palmer, was once taken from her after a Children and Youth Services report, but the parents later got him back.

    “I think they have an idea in their head that the kids are going to be taken away from them, and they’re never going to see them again,” Kimberly told the outlet.

    Police said Makias is also with the parents. He’s described as having dirty blonde hair.

    Klingensmith’s father, Eric, disputed the claims that the couple abused Ambrose, stating that they were massaging his stomach to help him use the bathroom.

    “There might have been a mistake made,” Eric said, according to Action News 4. “There was definitely a bruise. I don’t believe the bruise happened because anybody was trying to hurt the baby.”

    “Bring the kids home let us take care of them. We’ll work through what you have to work through, so you can get your kids back. It’s a process; you’ve got to go through it,” Eric said, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

    The suspects may be in a gold/silver 2001 Buick Century with Pennsylvania license plate number, LBD6681. The couple could possibly be on their way to Florida. The car was last seen traveling south on Route 19 and McMurray Road in Washington County, at around 1:45 p.m.

    Previously Missing, Endangered 7-Week-Old Ambrose Klingensmith Found Safe

    Missing 7-week-old Ambrose Klingensmith was found Tuesday after he was missing for almost a week.

    The missing child, along with another child in the car at the time, was found in Marshall County, Tennessee after the Lewisburg Police Department acted on information received during the investigation.

    The two adults are in custody in a detention center, awaiting extradition. They are facing charges, including obstruction, retaliation and child endangerment.

    The two children were taken to the hospital.

    The West Mifflin Police said Ambrose will remain in the care of the local Tennesse child welfare authorities until the Allegheny County Child, Youth and Families can take custody of him.
