Police: Suspect in 1987 kidnapping seen at pawnshop

A woman suspected of snatching an infant from a New York hospital in 1987 was seen at a pawnshop in Bridgeport, Connecticut, on Saturday, police said Sunday.

A warrant was issued Friday in North Carolina for the arrest of Ann Pettway, suspected in the abduction of Carlina Renae White. After 23 years, White tracked down her real mother earlier this month, saying she had had a
nagging feeling all her life that she was brought up by a family she didn't belong to.

Pettway was seen at Joe David Pawnbroker about 3 p.m. Saturday, Bridgeport police Detective Keith Bryant told CNN.
