A teenage girl took an 8-day-old baby from a Detroit home while the childs mother recovered in the hospital, triggering an Amber Alert and an intense search Friday morning, police said.
The baby’s 27-year-old mother went into the hospital for medical issues relating to the birth and left the baby in the care of her 24-year-old sister who lives on Lantz Street on Detroit’s east side. At some point, the sister fell asleep. When she awoke around 1 p.m. Thursday, both the baby and Jasmin were gone. Police were not notified about the disappearance until around 11 p.m. Thursday.
Jasmin is described as a black female, 5 feet 2 and weighing 100 pounds. She has brown eyes. Her hair is in a black and red weave and she was last seen wearing a red jacket, red shirt and blue jeans.
The child is black, 20 inches long, 7 pounds 11 ounces, and has brown eyes. She was wearing a pink, white and purple-striped outfit with matching hat.
