The hunt for a baby kidnapped from its mother’s womb in Missouri has been found. Iowa law officers were notified of the kidnapping as it happened in Skidmore, Missouri, a town some 20 miles from the Iowa border, where a northwest Missouri woman was found dead in her home Thursday afternoon. Her eight-month-old fetus had been removed. Nodaway County, Missouri Sheriff Ben Espey announced the baby was found safe on Friday. “The child appears to be healthy and in good shape,” Espey says. “The child is at a hospital right now, being checked out by a pediatrician and we have no indications that the child was hurt in any way and the child is probably going to be o-k.” An Amber Alert was issued for the child and a tip led F-B-I agents to a home in Kansas. “That tip is one of those that we thought we really needed to track down and we went after that one and we really focused on that hard, let some of the others (tips) go up in smoke and we (were) on the right track and it’s really paid off,” the sheriff says. The Amber Alert was crucial, according to Espey. A license plate number and car description on the Amber Alert led authorities to that house in Kansas — the car was parked in the driveway.Two people are being questioned by authorities in connection with the case, and Espey won’t elaborate on who those people are. “That’s where we’ll leave it,” Espey told reporters.
