Police: Missing Kansas newborn found in Dallas; 2 in custody
WICHITA, Kan. - Police in Kansas say a week-old newborn girl who went missing after her mother was shot to death has been found alive in Dallas.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Chief Gordon Ramsay said Saturday morning that suspects in the death of 27-year-old Laura Abarca-Nogueda took the child and fled to Texas, where Sofia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca was found safe.
Ramsay said two people are in custody.
Police and the FBI had been looking for the child since Thursday. Ramsay said law enforcement received a tip about 4:30 a.m. Saturday that the child was in Dallas.
The police chief also said finding the girl alive and healthy is "the best possible outcome to a very sad case."
