Peoria police notified the public of the kidnapping around 8:45 p.m. and an Amber Alert was sent for the baby after midnight. The Arizona Department of Public Safety told The Arizona Republic it was investigating the nearly six-hour delay between the kidnapping and the Amber Alert.
The baby was found safe around 1 a.m. Wednesday when Peoria police went to a location in North Phoenix for a report of an abandoned child, according to police.
The baby was dressed and in good health when he was dropped off at the door of a home near 23rd Avenue and 21st Drive, said Peoria Police spokesman Sgt. Amanda Gaines, who added that neither Maes nor Martie knew about the house. The unoccupied minivan was found less than a mile away near Cactus Road and Interstate 17. Amber Alert tweeted around 2:20 a.m. that the alert was canceled.
At approximately 2:45 p.m. On Wednesday, Phoenix police received a 911 call reporting a possible Maes sighting near 23rd Avenue and Cactus Road, according to a statement from the department. Officers arrived and saw the man who matched the description. When they tried to make contact with him, the man ran away.

Maes was being transported to the Peoria Police Department, where he will be interviewed, prosecuted, and incarcerated on a manslaughter charge, though charges can be added or amended, Peoria police said around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
“The family has requested privacy as they try to process this tragic event,” Gaines said in an email Wednesday. “I have been asked to convey to all media partners that they are not interested in speaking to the media at this time.”
Melanie Cowan said that she and Martie have been best friends since they met in 2014.
Martie was silly, she loved taking photos and always gave and cared; after her mother died, she took care of her father and grandfather in addition to being a mother to her daughter, who is now 10 years old, Cowan said.
Although her legal name was Brittany Martie, Cowan said that she is a married name and that she had been using her maiden name, Brittany Walker.
“She was a sweet, tiny, cute little thing, but she had five times the strength,” Cowan said.
Cowan declined to speak about Maes and referred to Martie’s family. She said that Martie was dedicated to her family. â € œThe brute strength she had for that baby, I would expect nothing more from her, â € Cowan said. â € œShe fell fighting and that is not surprising.
