FAIRFIELD, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama woman is charged with kidnapping after a newborn baby boy was abducted from a home in suburban Birmingham.

Authorities tell news outlets that 37-year-old Lakesha Brown was arrested in the disappearance of 4-day-old Kamarion Taylor.

Authorities say the baby’s mother awakened from a nap Tuesday afternoon to find the infant missing from the playpen where she had laid him for a nap.

The child was located and returned to his mother more than five hours later.

Court records weren’t available to show whether Brown had a lawyer who could speak on her behalf.
