Transcript for Missing Texas Baby Found Thanks to Social Media
a happy ending to a brazen baby abduction, thanks to social media. A baby girl is safe and sound after being taken in broad da daylight in front of her mother in front of the home. Reporter: The baby just 2 months old, was in her car seat when the stranger grabbed her and ran. Word of the kidnapping spread. And it led to the tip they needed to find her. Overnight, a desperate search launched in Texas after police say a stranger snatched 2-month-old adalaide Christensen, right in front of her mother's eyes. The mother, just feet away, helpless. There's no way to describe that. Just the way, there's no way to describe the way it felt when I got the call. Reporter: This woman approach approached adalaide's mother in the driveway. When she didn't get the money, she grabbed the child and ran. She took the baby and the carrier and fled on foot. Reporter: All in a matter of mere seconds. It's not every day you see a child abduction where the abductor asks for money. She had a different motivation. This maybe was all about money. Reporter: But almost immediately tips from social media and the community poured in to help to find the 2-month-old girl. One of the tips led to adalaide, at the nearby home of Mcclain's parents. I'm please to report that aid laid Christensen has been found. Reporter: There inside, police found the missing baby with her alleged abductor. McLane is facing felony kidnapping charges. The tip came from someone who knew the suspect and spot spotted her with the baby. Adalaide's mom and dad are grateful she is safe and healthy and back home. Out of their arms, I'm sure, this morning. Reporter: Watching over here. Thanks, Michelle.
