MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) -

Harrison County Sheriff's Office confirms that baby Ethan Ramsey has been found safe.  He was found alone in his mother's missing truck Friday morning. Marion County Sheriff's Office tells us the truck was found in a ditch, wrecked.  Champion EMS checked him out and reports that he is fine.  Baby Ethan has been turned over to his father.

5-month-old Ethan Ramsey went missing somewhere around the Marshall area on Thursday. The Harrison County Sheriff's Office says his mother, Rachel Potter, 25, was in Longview at some point that morning.

Around 4:00 p.m. Thursday, Marion County Sheriff David McKnight says their office received a call about a partially-clothed woman walking along Farm to Market Road 134 two miles east of Jefferson. Deputies arrived to find Potter incoherent and nude from the waist down. She was taken into custody for public intoxication.

Sheriff McKnight tells us after she was picked up, Potter told them she had no memory of the last few hours except for she had her 5-month-old son with her and no idea where he was. She also could not remember where she left her truck.  She is in jail booked on felony child endangerment.  Other charges are pending.

Marion County Sheriff's Office says Harrison County Sheriff's Office was instrumental in finding the child.
