Mother Horrified After Waking Up In The Hospital To Her Child Missing - Nurses Laugh While Another Patient Held Her Baby

A 4-month-old baby was admitted to an Arkansas hospital for excessive bleeding. Her tired mother fell asleep by her crib, and was disturbed when she woke up and found out her baby was missing. She was even more furious that the nurses allowed it.

Lory Beth Snyder says she was in a panic when she woke up and found her daughter Lorelai missing. Along with the baby, the crib was missing, the diaper bag and the IV pole. The terrified mother went searching for her baby, fearing the worst.

Lory found Lorelai in another patient's room. The patient was holding Lorelai and she was surrounded by laughing nurses.

"I didn’t know this lady. She was not a nurse or a doctor. Just another hospital patient,” Lory wrote in a Facebook post. “I proceed to take Lorelai out of her arms. Even though she persisted that I return to my room, without Lorelai, she stated repeatedly that I needed to just go rest. I told her, no that I was fine and I would be taking my daughter back now."

The nurses tried to reassure Lory that the woman was harmless, but the woman kept following the mother around trying to take the baby.

"After what felt like an eternity, the nurses returned to transfer us to ICU, so we were in a secure unit that had security,” writes Lory.

Lory even contacted the police because she didn't know if the woman was mentally sound, had an illness or if her intentions were actually innocent. The police say no crime was committed because the woman didn't intend to rape or harm the child. "Apparently anyone can take any child anywhere, and it’s not kidnapping as long as you don’t intend to harm the child. So says the law according to the Jonesboro PD," said Lory.

"Thank the gods that my baby is safe. We were lucky. Many parents do not get as lucky as we have," she concluded. "Child Abduction isn’t something that should be so easily dismissed.”
