Hicks said the couple involved in the dispute lived at 1250 E. Mount Pleasant - also dubbed the "Blackbird Black" house by area residents - and the former residence of William Brown, 62. Hicks said Brown is not involved in this case and has not lived at the residence for some time.
"It is unknown at this time whether the man is the son of Brown," Hicks said. "We won't have names on the couple until charges have been filed."
The man was taken into custody and the woman left with the couple's two-month-old baby boy around 11 a.m.
A neighbor near Barnett Road called 911 Monday evening to say the woman had wandered into her yard, acting incoherently.
About 2 a.m. a relative of the woman called Zachary Police to say something had happened and was concerned about the couple's infant, Hicks said.
The man was in custody and the mother at Lane Regional Medical Center, Hicks said.
"A search immediately began about 3 a.m. on foot and by air utilizing ATVs, a Baton Rouge Police helicopter and involving EBRSO deputies, Zachary Police, Zachary Fire, DCI dogs and EMS and resumed this morning," Hicks said at the scene.
The infant was found about 10 a.m. in the wooded area directly across from the Blackbird Black house, Hicks said. "The baby is reported as being two months old and male," Hicks said.
The couple is being questioned.
No further information is available at this time.
Updates on the names of the couple and more information on this investigation will be available as soon as it is made available.
