A 19-year-old Pittsburgh area woman who claimed to be pregnant is under arrest for allegedly stealing a newborn baby from a Pittsburgh hospital, disguised as a nurse.  Police say Breona Moore abducted three-day-old Bryce Coleman yesterday afternoon from Magee Women’s Hospital.

Pittsburgh Police Commander Thomas Stangrecki says Moore was tracked down after her parents learned of the abduction on the news.  They didn’t believe the girl’s claim she was pregnant and notified the authorities.

According to hospital staff, the baby has been retrieved and is doing well.

Moore was not a student at Edinboro University, despite information on her Facebook page that indicates that she was enrolled in the class of 2012.

“She had neither enrolled nor applied to Edinboro University,” says Universtity Public Relations Director Jeff Pinski.
