Police say the boy’s aunt brought him to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC on Sept. 5 after the child said his mother gave him something to smoke that investigators believe was a crack pipe.

The child has been in the custody of his aunt since Aug. 27 after Daniels left him at a home in Crafton Heights and never returned.
