UPDATE: 911 Call Shows Mom Doubted Sister Took Baby
UPDATE: (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- We are getting new information about the Wisconsin baby -- kidnapped and found in West Branch last week.
4-day-old Kayden Powell survived a night in freezing weather, outside of a gas station.
And now, authorities have released the 911 call from the frantic mother after she discovered he was missing.
As you said, most interesting at first, is that Kayden's mom, point blank says her sister Kristen Smith didn't take Kayden.
Of course Smith is now in jail, suspected of doing just that.
Ironically, it was information from those denials on the 9-11 call, though, that led them to Iowa and to Smith.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The 911 recording from a missing infant's mother shows the clearly distraught woman didn't think her half-sister took the days-old infant.
Brianna Marshall tells dispatchers during the nine-minute call that her sister was in the home the night before. Marshall says she woke up and her baby was gone. But she tells dispatchers her sister wouldn't take her son.
Police later found the boy alive in a storage crate in West Branch, Iowa in single-digit temperatures.
Authorities have charged Kristen R. Smith, of Denver, with kidnapping the boy.
Marshall's grandmother was in the home during the call. She tells dispatchers that Smith was gone when the boy was discovered missing from his bassinet in the Town of Beloit home.
Smith remains in the Cedar County jail. Authorities say she's being kept in solitary confinement for her own safety.
