Doctors confirmed the baby – who still had the umbilical cord clamp on him – was unharmed by the ordeal.

Police said the suspected kidnapper is middle-aged, 1.6 metres tall, obese with long curly hair tied up in a bun/

She was last seen with the baby in her arms at 11pm on Wednesday.

Police believe it is not the first time she tried to take away a baby from a hospital.
