24-day-old boy last seen at the hospital after his birth found safe after Amber Alert issued

AUSTIN, Texas — An Amber Alert was issued for a missing 24-day-old baby boy, last seen July 22 in Austin, Texas.

Police said they believed Elijah Phillips to be in grave or immediate danger, and said he could be with three adults, Brandy Galbert, 41, Carl Hayden Jr., 37, and Brittany Smith, 30.

Police were seeking those adults in connection with the baby’s abduction.

The baby boy was found safe, police announced Monday evening, Aug. 12.

According to police, Brittany Smith gave birth to the child on July 19 after checking into the hospital using a fake name. Police said Smith gave permission for the baby to leave the hospital on July 22 with a family member, believed to be the cousin — Brandy Galbert.

On July 24, Child Protective Investigators got a court order for Elijah to be removed from his mother’s custody and placed into theirs.

Police said Monday evening the baby boy was placed with CPS — and they were still looking for his mother.
