Newborn Kidnapped from Hospital

November 22, 2000

DETROIT (AP) _ An old high school friend visiting a new mother at a hospital apparently kidnapped the mother’s day-old infant.

No one at Hutzel Hospital noticed anything unusual Tuesday as the woman carried the baby boy out of the maternity ward.

Police believe the kidnapper and mother met at the hospital by coincidence, bumping into each other in a hallway while the acquaintance was visiting another patient.

The mother invited her old friend back to her room to see her baby, then left them alone for a few minutes while she used the bathroom in her room. When she returned, they were gone.

The infant was still missing Wednesday.
