Two day-old baby abducted on Tuesday in Orthez has been found

According to a Belgian daily newspaper's online edition, little Diango, who was abducted on Tuesday from a maternity unit in Orthez (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) has been found safe and well. He was apparently recovered by police checking vehicles and the woman who abducted him has been arrested.

"Le bébé de deux jours enlevé tôt mardi dans une maternité d'Orthez (Pyrénées-Atlantiques) a été retrouvé "en bonne santé" et la femme qui l'avait enlevé a été interpellée, a-t-on appris mercredi de source policière."

Le Soir

The woman who abducted the child has been arrested, thanks to witnesses who gave a description and the woman's brother, who called the police after seeing the alert. He had received a call from his sister saying that she had given birth, which seemed immediately suspicious to him, since she had not appeared to be pregnant, and her brother matched her to the description given by the witnesses.

Another success for the French Abduction Alert system.

Congratulations to the gendarmes who found little Diango and all those French people who took part in the alert and the search.

Glad all ended well, and the 'Alerte enlèvement' worked as it was supposed to.

Such good news, Joana. The 'Alerte enlèvement' was triggered yesterday at around 4.30pm and the child was found this morning.
