Swisher Man Sought in Child Endangerment Case Captured

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.
