"Newborn Returned After Being Kidnapped"

Keep an eye on your newborns, especially with distant cousins around.

Law enforcement authorities said that Joanne Cuellar Martinez left with Isabella Lilly Schwartz from the baby's mother's home in Lytle about 4:45 p.m. without the mother's consent. Martinez is a distant cousin of the baby.

When Martinez was contacted by phone, she returned to the home, but without the baby, law enforcement authorities said.

A Texas Ranger, Lytle police and constables questioned Martinez for several hours until she eventually gave in and led authorities to the baby in Pearsall, law enforcement authorities said. ...

Law enforcement authorities said Martinez was apologetic about the incident.

I certainly hope she was.
