Carlina White, (AP) – More than two decades ago, a newborn patient with fever was abducted from a New York hospital, his mother crazy to return to the urgency of finding an empty bed. On Wednesday, police said the baby – now a woman – was found.

Carlina White was just 19 days old when she vanished from Harlem Hospital on August 4, 1987. The police searched for his captors, but never found enough evidence to indict the suspects. Her mother, Joy White, always felt that her baby was alive, his family said.

January 4, a woman known as Nejdra Nance, who grew up in Bridgeport, Connecticut and now lives in Atlanta, contacted White, sending photos along baby that looked almost identical to Loved Carlina posted on the site for missing children. Nance says white she thought she could be his daughter.

“She said she was just a feeling, it felt different people from his farm, said maternal grandmother Nance, Elizabeth White, 71.” She looked, and then she found joy. ”

Joy White has contacted the New York Police Department to see if she could help determine whether the woman was really Carlina White.

“It seemed legitimate and credible, so I had disappeared to reach out to her, the detective said Martin Brown, who answered the call. DNA tests conducted on Joy White, her ex-husband, Carl Tyson Nance and 23-years match, police said. Nejdra Nance was Carlina White.

As part of their investigation, police detectives speak to retirement that handled the case years ago. As she was very young when she was kidnapped, it is impossible to know whether Nance has lived with the family during this time.

Nance was on his way back to New York from Atlanta on Wednesday, said Elizabeth White, and Joy White was en route to the airport to meet him. But they have already met once recently, when Nance came to New York with her 5-year-old daughter, Samani.

“It was wonderful, she did not even seem like a stranger, she has just the right person,” said Elizabeth White. “We all went there, we had dinner together, and her aunts were there. She brought her daughter beautiful. It was magical. ”

Elizabeth White said she did not ask too many questions Nance about how she grew and how she knew she was not a member of the family with whom she lived. She did not want to push too Nance.

“It will all come,” said Elizabeth White of history. “What is important now is our little girl is at home. She is at home. ”

In the fourth round, black type described on a family photo tinted bronze representing the meeting of “Carlina blanc”avec his biological parents at least 23 years (there is a reason to put it that way keep reading) after its removal from the hospital in Harlem. They are all forward, his arms around Mom Carlina, daddy’s arms around them. It’s a sweet picture (even if mom and dad are divorced some time now and everyone has a new family because they lost their daughter). “Children abducted City Hosp. 23 years ago,” says the dek, which, since it is geographically north of the main hed makes sense in context. There is a piece of lead in a white box with a band- red top that says “exclusive”.
