A woman disguised as a nurse kidnapped a newborn baby from a Salvadoran hospital, having the child handed over by the mother and then placing him in a backpack to escape without being noticed. The real nurse only realized the kidnapping later. The search began immediately, but the woman was not found in the hospital. Fortunately, video surveillance images helped the police locate the newborn, safe and sound, in the custody of a couple who had pretended to be his parents. The fake nurse is currently on the run, and the police are looking for her along with another person who allegedly helped her enter the hospital.
