    Confusing article. The baby was kidnapped from the mother’s residence by the mother and father? There’s got to be more to the story than that.

    I believe it was the Man & HIS Mother who kidnapped baby from it’s Mother.

    It doesn’t say anything in the article about the man being the child’s father. Only that a man and his mother took a baby. Can someone clarify if the man was the child’s father or relative? It would make a little more since for them to take the child then. Otherwise if it was just some random person taking a baby, the story is even more scary.
