Kidnapped Baby Reunited With Mother

A newborn kidnapped from a Texas hospital has been returned to her mother after being found safe in New Mexico.  The four-day-old girl, Mychael Darthard-Dawodu, was flown back to Lubbock hours after being found about 100 miles away in Clovis.

Police say a 21-year-old woman has been arrested in Clovis on suspicion of kidnapping. She's been questioned by investigators from the F-B-I and Lubbock police.  Police say a woman posing as a medical worker walked out of Covenant Lakeside Hospital with the baby early yesterday.

The girl was being treated for jaundice, a common condition in newborns.  A hospital official says the baby's parents are "relieved and happy."
