Kidnapped Baby Finds Family After 23 Years
A woman kidnapped as a baby from a New York hospital has been reunited with her family 23 years later – after uncovering her own abduction case.
Carlina White was 19 days old when she was stolen from Harlem Hospital in 1987.
Her parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson, had taken her there because she had a high fever.
They said a woman dressed as a nurse helped them at the hospital and they left Carlina to recover overnight.
However, when the Tysons returned the next day both the ‘nurse’ and their daughter had vanished.
Despite the offer of a $10,000 (£6,200) reward no suspects were ever identified.
However, as the years went by, it turned out the best investigator on the case was Carlina herself.
