CNN has more information on the kidnapped baby and some footage of the suspect.
“The biggest problem is that babies, within the first three days, need either mother’s milk or an electrolyte solution. They can’t have cow’s milk,” Siegel said.
Siegel also said that if they don’t get nutrition quickly “there would be a life-threatening problem. Time is of the essence.”
Hudgens issued an appeal to the kidnapper: “Please take [the infant] to some place safe, and drop [her] off if need be. That’s our main concern right now, the safety of this child.”
Police say Mychael could still be with the suspected kidnapper, who is driving a late-model red Dodge pickup truck with black trim and tinted windows.
Another person may have been in the truck when the suspect got in it with the baby, Hudgens said.
The suspected kidnapper has a medium build and was last seen wearing pink nurse’s scrubs with purple and blue flowers and a gray or tan winter coat with a fur hood, police said.
She is about 5 feet 3 inches tall, African-American, in her 20s, and her hair is dyed auburn, the Amber Alert said.
Anyone with information about the kidnapping is asked to call the Lubbock Police Department at 806-775-2788, 806-775-2816 or 806-741-1000.
