A baby girl who was allegedly abducted this afternoon in Swansea has been found safe in Connecticut, State Police said this afternoon.
One-year-old Jaylin Boudria was found apparently unharmed in Middletown, Conn., and is being taken to a local hospital for evaluation, said State Police spokesman David Procopio.
State Police had issued an Amber Alert less than two hours before, asking for the public's help in finding the baby.
Police are still looking for Kimberly Johnson, 38, the woman who allegedly drove off with the baby. Johnson is driving a gray or silver Kia Rio station wagon with Minnesota plates, Procopio said.
The baby was abducted at 12:45 p.m. from a Shell station on Route 6 at Route 136 in Swansea. The woman and the baby were not strangers, police said, but wouldn't elaborate further.
Procopio said police in Connecticut found Boudria when they responded to a report of an abandoned child.
