May 29 , 2014
The mother of one day-old baby abducted by a fake nurse, found the infant with the help of four young people who posted the photo on Facebook. The suspect's photo was identified and police found the unharmed baby at her home.
"Every click, every share made the difference," the mother said. "Four marvelous people, whom we had the chance to meet, identified this woman thanks to Facebook...We felt a huge amount of support from the public."
Police mentioned that the woman kidnapped the infant after dressing in scrubs and telling the mother that she needs to weigh the baby. "Don't ever be fooled by the uniform," she said as a message for new mothers, adding that it's necessary to check badges at the hospital.
