Abducted Texas baby found safe, woman arrested
ABILENE, Texas -- The month-old infant who was snatched from her family's minivan in a Wal-Mart parking lot was found safe Wednesday over 100 miles away. Authorities said they arrested a female suspect.
"It's an answer to a lot of prayers that she was found and she's safe," police Sgt. Kim Vickers said of Nancy Crystal Chavez.
Police said Paula Lynn Roach, 24, was being held on a charge of aggravated kidnapping.
The girl and Roach were in a car pulled over near Quanah, 125 miles north of Abilene. Vickers said a reunion was planned for Wednesday.
Nancy was abducted Tuesday while her mother returned a cart in the parking lot.
Vickers said authorities believe Roach was alone in the car and watching the child's mother.
The abduction prompted Texas' first statewide Amber Alert, a system used in more than 40 places nationwide to track missing children by transmitting information quickly to television and radio stations.
