Lubbock Police Officers were called to 2217 46th St. today (Sunday, 06/04/06) at approx. 1:10 p.m. reference the possible kidnapping from this residence of a four day old baby .
Priscilla Nicole Maldonado was born May 31, 2006 at U.M.C. Priscilla went home with her mother, Erica Ysasaga on Friday, June 2nd.
While at the hospital, a woman identifying herself as Lisa Stewart came by the room several times and visited with Erica and checked on the baby. This person was wearing scrubs and gave the appearance of being either a nurse or nurse's aid of some sort. It has not been confirmed whether or not this suspect was an actual employee of the hospital.
An ailing 5-day-old girl, snatched from her mother by a woman who had posed as a hospital worker, has been found and is being evaluated at the University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, police and hospital officials said.
"This little baby is in remarkably good shape," said Lt. Roy Bassett, a Lubbock Police Department spokesman.
After a tip called in to police, Priscilla Nicole Maldonado was found unattended, lying in a car seat in a carport at a Lubbock condominium complex. Temperatures at the time were in the low 100s.
Police have arrested 33-year-old Stephanie Lynn Anderson Jones on kidnapping charges. According to Bassett, Jones could face additional charges, including endangerment.
Police were led to Jones and her husband after a tip from a caller in Amarillo, Bassett said. A detective called and asked the husband if his wife had recently had a baby. After police were given conflicting answers, they became suspicious and went to the condominium complex, where they found the baby.
