Mississippi authorities say it could be weeks before they know what caused the death of 7-month-old Alyssa Harris, whose parents fled to Georgia after the grandfather called emergency workers to try to help the unresponsive baby.
Police captured the parents -- 34-year-old Donald Boyd Harris and 31-year-old Allison Studdard -- early Thursday in Sylvester, Ga., about 170 miles south of Atlanta.
Authorities say Harris and Studdard are being held on felony drug warrants, and deputies are heading Friday to Georgia to bring them back to Mississippi.
Mississippi issued an Amber Alert on Wednesday for the couple's 2-year-old daughter, Maliah Harris, after Donald Harris and Studdard fled with her. She was with them and unharmed when they were captured. Authorities released Maliah to the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services.
