Nebraska officials have taken custody of an 18-month-old after the child's mother tried sell the boy online at Craigslist.

Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov says charges have not yet been filed against the mother.

But state officials took the child into foster care late Friday to make sure the boy's safe.

The text of the ad said the woman is a methamphetamine addict and the boy deserves a mom who is not an addict.

The woman said in the ad her son needs help before she does something crazy.
