Now to some good news this morning. Seven-week-old baby reported kidnapped in North Carolina was found safe overnight. Police are now investigating the mystery over her disappearance and ABC's Steve osunsami is in Asheville, North Carolina, with the latest. Good morning, Steve. Reporter: Good morning to you, George. It is quite the mystery and it is fortunate that this child lived. Asheville police are trying to figure out how in the world a baby got to a lawn some 20 miles away from where the mother says the child went missing. This morning, a 7-week-old baby girl whose mother says she was kidnapped is safe and sound after a homeowner happened to hear the baby crying in his front yard in rural north Carolina. We just heard a baby crying. And my wife said, Scott, there's a baby crying down there over the driveway somewhere. Reporter: The baby's mother told police a frightening story that she and the newborn were kidnapped by a man and woman wearing ski masks 4:30 Thursday afternoon but only the mom was able to escape. Two hours later they found the missing car but not the baby. Then at 8:00 P.M. Scott fowler heard the cries of an infant outside his home and found her in a carseat placed next to a rock in his yard. He's thankful the child was left close to his home. We expect police to share more details today to answer some of those questions. As far as the child's condition, Amy, they tell us that she is in good condition, was not hurt and that, of course, is a blessing. Yeah, thank goodness for that. Thanks so much.
