Los Angeles police were investigating a man and woman believed to be traveling with an infant they took from Highland Park Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

Although Officer Tony Im had originally described the incident as a kidnapping, authorities later said it was being handled as a civil dispute.

Previously, police had said 3-month-old Savannah King was taken from near the corner of Meridian and Figueroa streets, where Luther Burbank Middle School sits, around 3:30 p.m. She was last seen wearing a purple onesie.

Police described the suspects only as a black man and woman, and said they were driving a black Kia with license plate number 6YNA404.

Officers had tracked the vehicle to the 1000 block of West 40th Place in South Los Angeles and were waiting outside the house where it was parked, Im said.

It was unclear whether the suspects and child were also at the location.

No further details were available.
