Kidnapping Suspect Contacted Police via Facebook, Says Source
The baby, Carlina White, grew up with a different name, but recently reunited with her biological family after conducting extensive online research. The last time Joy White saw her daughter was on August 4th, 1987, when Carlina was 19-days old. White checked her daughter into a Harlem hospital because Carlina was running a high fever. After going home to rest, the mother returned to the hospital, only to find that her baby was gone. It's unclear what would have motivated Pettway to steal the baby, but Carlina says that Pettway had been pregnant in 1987, and lost the child.
