(CNN) A woman not believed to be an employee abducted a newborn Thursday afternoon, according to a Pittsburgh hospital.

CNN affiliate WPXI said the incident involving a 3-day-old baby occurred at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC.

Wendy Zellner, a UPMC spokeswoman, told CNN the abduction occurred as the family was preparing for the infant to be discharged.

She said further details were not immediately available.

Infant abducted at Pittsburgh hospital found; suspect arrested

(CNN) -- A 3-day-old baby abducted from a Pittsburgh
hospital has been reunited with his mother, and a suspect is in
custody, authorities said.

Pittsburgh police
recovered the baby hours after a female suspect in black scrubs and pink
shoes was caught on surveillance Thursday afternoon at Magee-Womens
Hospital of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

The family was preparing to be discharged when the abduction happened, said Wendy Zellner, a hospital spokeswoman.

A few hours later, Breona
Moore, 19, was arrested. She will be charged with one count of
kidnapping, Pittsburgh police said in a statement.






Breona Moore, 19, was arrested in the abduction of a baby from a Pittsburgh hospital.

Police took Moore into
custody after her relative tipped them off to a Facebook post where she
claimed she had a baby Monday. The anonymous tip led police to a
downtown building, where they arrested her and found the baby.

As she was transported
from the squad car to the police headquarters, Moore yelled, "Guess what
mom? It's all your fault!" CNN affiliate WPXI filmed her shouting. "I'm telling you, it wasn't just me!"

Moore's final comment to reporters before police removed her was, "It's a lot when you lose a child."

Physicians examined the infant and found him to be in good health, hospital officials said.
"We'd like to thank the
police, the FBI and our staff for their great and rapid work to bring
this incident to a successful conclusion," hospital President Leslie
Davis said in a statement. "We will be reviewing this event to see what
improvements could be made in our security procedures."

On discovering the
baby's disappearance, hospital employees immediately notified police and
implemented security procedures, according to Zellner.

The suspect had bought hospital scrubs at a uniform store that morning and provided a fake name, police said.

Baby abductions by
nonfamily members at hospitals are rare. Before Thursday, there had been
131 cases since 1983, according to the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children. Of those, 126 infants were found.

"Baby Bryce Coleman was transported by medics to Magee-Womens Hospital to be medically checked out, authorities said. He was listed in good condition and reunited with his mother and father. Family members said they will likely be discharged on Friday."

Yes I'm so thankful this newborn was found and returned to his family so quickly! That is a nightmare I hope his Mom will recover from quickly.

Snipped from above: "Baby abductions by nonfamily members at hospitals are rare. Before Thursday, there had been 131 cases since 1983, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Of those, 126 infants were found." That sure doesn't seem 'rare' to me. Actually I am shocked and would like to see a graph because it seems like this is happening a lot now but I only recall hearing of maybe two cases like this in the last few decades. I would have chained my babies to me back then if I had an inkling someone might have snatched them out of the hospital!

The comments the abductor made are interesting and sad. I wonder if this girl's mother made her have an abortion or give up a baby for adoption?
