Lubbock, Texas (AP) -- A newborn kidnapped from a hospital here was found safe in New Mexico on Sunday, police said.
Four-day-old Mychael Darthard-Dawodu was in good condition in Clovis, N.M., and transportation was being arranged to return the baby to Texas, said Lubbock police Lt. Scott Hudgens.
The infant was kidnapped early Saturday by a woman posing as a medical worker, police said. The woman walked out of Covenant Lakeside Hospital with the 5-pound baby hidden away in her purse, police said.
The abduction sparked a manhunt and multiple Amber Alerts in Texas and New Mexico. Tips about the abduction came in from across the region and the country, Hudgens said.
