Authorities say 11-month-old Jamarion Jackson was born addicted to amphetamines and has asthma.

He requires daily treatment, and police say he isn't safe alone with his mother, Sasha Dominguez.

Sometime before 7 Tuesday night, police say Dominguez walked out of a rehab center with her baby. Authorities say the pair was picked up near the highway.

An Amber Alert was issued Wednesday morning, and the two were later found at a Carlsbad home.

Dominguez has an extensive criminal history, including drug charges. She's been arrested more than ten times in Carlsbad.

KOB Eyewitness News 4 wanted to know how Dominguez was able to leave the rehab facility with her baby, but the facility refused to answer any questions.

Jamarion is in good health and the investigation is ongoing.
