Police in central California say they have located a 4-month old baby boy who was allegedly kidnapped by a homeless man.
The Hanford Police Department says the baby was found safe in Lemoore about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of Hanford, where the child was abducted. The suspect identified as 42-year-old Wesley Williams was taken into custody.
Investigators tell the Fresno television station Williams called police stating that he had the child and asked about his rights. They say officers directed him to return the baby, but he did not do so and turned off his phone.
Police initially believed this was a child custody dispute but have since confirmed it was a kidnapping
