Saturday around 12:25 p.m., Second District police received a report on the 3000 block of W.30th Street for an abducted two-month baby.

Upon arrival, officers were notified that the baby, Ana-Luisa Collazo had been found wrapped in a blanket behind a couch inside of the home.

According to officers, the infant was in the living room with the mother, 20-year-old Abisai Collazo lying on a mattress on the floor when the mother ran upstairs to use the restroom.
