FRANKLIN, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police are searching for a newborn infant taken early Friday morning from a central Kentucky hospital.
An Amber Alert was issued for Kentucky at 7:20 a.m. EST and was still active at 9:30 a.m., Kentucky State Police Major Sonny Cease said.
“We do not know where the child is at this time,” Cease said.
A woman sought in connection with the abduction was apprehended on Interstate 65 close to the Tennessee border, state police said. Cease said the woman was taken into custody for questioning, but she has not been charged.
The Amber Alert was expanded to include Tennessee after the woman was detained for questioning, Kentucky State Police Sgt. Phil Crumpton.
