The baby's father, David Guynn, said at a probation hearing on Wednesday that he does not know the baby’s location. Guynn faced child abuse charges involving the baby, but those charges were dismissed, according to KRQE.

Jesse Dickerson's 10-year-old daughter was already being cared for by family members before Dickerson's arrest.
