Comment on this story

CHICAGO (AP) A 1-month-old girl has been reunited with her family after police say she was abducted then abandoned in a gangway on Chicago's South Side.

Chicago police say they received a call of a missing person Tuesday morning. Police issued an alert with a description of the baby and the 18-year-old woman last seen with her.

An officer found the baby hours later after hearing her crying.

Police say T'Keyah Williams of Chicago has been arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping and endangering the life and health of a child.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Williams had been staying with the baby's family. They said Williams took the child because her boyfriend had a bond hearing and she thought showing up with a baby would evoke sympathy from the judge.
