BELOIT, Wisc. — A newborn boy who was reported missing from a Wisconsin town this week has been found alive in a tote bag at an Iowa gas station, police said.
Kayden went missing early Thursday, police say, just five days after he was born.”It’s just killing me inside,” Kayden’s mother, 18-year-old Brianna Marshall, told WTMJ. “I held that baby one time and that was the last time I seen that baby and held him.”
Authorities don’t know where Kayden was or who might have taken him. More than 40 officers, including FBI agents, are working the disappearance, WISN said.
Investigators have no suspects, said Steve Kopp, the chief of police in the Town of Beloit, Wisconsin. Police found no signs of a break-in, he said.
Iowa authorities are holding a woman on an unrelated fraud warrant who apparently showed up at the home where Marshall was visiting a sick relative on Saturday.
The woman allegedly said she was Marshall’s half-sister and that she, Marshall and the baby’s father would be moving to Colorado, according to WKOW.
The woman left the home early Thursday.
Authorities have not described the woman as a suspect in the baby’s disappearance.
“She had baby clothing in her car, but the plan was for Kayden and his mother and his father to move to Colorado, so that’s the explanation for the baby clothing in the car,” WISN quoted Kopp as saying.
