Provincial police have found and safely returned a baby kidnapped earlier from a Trois Rivieres hospital.

The Surete du Quebec (SQ) issued an Amber Alert after a woman, dressed as a nurse, kidnapped the one day old baby from the maternity ward of the Centre Hospitalier Regional de Trois Rivieres.

Police say the baby was wrapped in a blue blanket when the newborn was taken from its mother.

The suspect is in custody, reportedly arrested at her home in Trois Rivieres.
