MINDEN - A Louisiana man is accused of aggravated kidnapping after a 2-month-old boy was found abandoned on the ledge of an interstate overpass.
  
Police say 25-year-old Kyshaun Wilson abducted the boy from a family he knew. He told police God told him to do it.
  
KSLA-TV reports police began searching for baby Elijah after he was discovered missing around 3:30 a.m. Monday. Police say Wilson apparently gave the boy a bottle because he was crying before leaving the house with him.
  
Investigators say Wilson left the child beneath the I-20 overpass.
  
Police say Wilson confessed to a homeless man who called 911.
  
Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper says Elijah was found in a blanket, sleeping. He suffered only minor abrasions.
  
It was not immediately clear if Wilson has an attorney.
