FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Authorities were searching Saturday for a newborn baby after he and his mother were abducted by a knife-wielding woman in a sport utility vehicle, police said.

The baby, 29-day-old Brayn Dos Santos Gomes, was abducted with his mother, Maria Fatima Ramos Dos Santos, on Friday afternoon by a woman driving a black SUV, Fort Myers Police Chief Hilton Daniels said.

Ramos was released south of Fort Myers shortly afterward but the woman kept the baby, Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokesman Larry Long said Saturday. An Amber Alert was issued for the infant.

Police said the woman could be heading to Miami or Tampa in two-door SUV, which has window tint that is peeling.
