    OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) An eastern Iowa man sought in a child endangerment case has been found and arrested.

    Authorities say 25-year-old Michael Blair, of Swisher, is in Wapello County Jail and is being held on $200,000 bail. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.

    Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner says Blair was discovered in an attic around 1 a.m. Saturday in Ely, which sits south-southeast of Cedar Rapids. Gardner wouldn't elaborate on what led officers to Blair's hiding place.

    Police say Blair is suspected of child endangerment involving a seriously injured 2-month-old who was taken to an Ottumwa hospital on Dec. 7.
