Amber Alert – Day-old baby kidnapped from Trois-Rivières hospital

The Sûreté du Québec tweeted at approximately 9PM that an Amber Alert had been put into effect following the kidnapping of a day-old baby from the Trois-Rivières regional hospital.  An unidentified woman dressed in a red nursing outfit entered the newborn mother’s hospital room and took the child from its mother under false pretenses.  The baby was wrapped in a blue blanket.

Police are looking for a 5’4″ (163cm) woman weighing about 130lbs (59kg), around 30 years old with dark reddish hair of mid-bicep length.  She was seen driving a red Toyota Yaris Hatchback (image example) with a “bébé à bord” sticker on the rear window.  Anyone with information is asked to immediately dial 911.

Amber Alerts are general requests by the police for immediate assistance from all media and citizens to spread the word and keep a look out for a recently-kidnapped child.  See the full Amber Alert document here.

UPDATE: Sûreté du Québec officials are reporting at 10:27PM that the child has been found and the suspect apprehended.  Thank you for your vigilance.
