Anderson County Sheriff's Office officials are investigating a possible case of child abuse after a 7-month-old female was taken to a Dallas hospital for arm and leg injuries Saturday.

According to Sheriff Greg Taylor, officers were dispatched to the scene at about 7 p.m. Saturday and the child was taken to Palestine Regional Medical Center and then flown by helicopter on to Children's Medical Center in Dallas.

“We are still in the very early stages of the investigation — conducting a lot of interviews,” Taylor said. “so we can't release a lot of information at this time.”

The sheriff reported that the child was released from the hospital and was with her mother, as of Monday afternoon.

Investigator Ryan Tolliver is overseeing the case.
