Newborn taken from hospital

Posted: Updated:
PINE BLUFF (KATV) - A baby taken from Jefferson Regional Medical Center in Pine Bluff is now in the custody of the state's Department of Human Services.

DHS was supposed to pick up the one-day old baby on Wednesday. When the mother got word they were coming, she left the hospital with the baby.

The hospital issued a code pink when they discovered from security cameras the woman had left.

Police found them at an extended stay hotel. Police say what the mom did is not considered kidnapping and she is not facing any criminal charges.
